Typically held in May, the KISD Fine Arts Districtwide Art Show is being held virtually in 2020, and artwork from students from kindergarten through 12th grade can be viewed online.
“Art teachers spend weeks putting together some of the most amazing artwork our kids have been working on,” KISD Director of Fine Arts Kim Blann said. “We display thousands of pieces of artwork and have thousands of community members celebrate that artwork.”
The 2020 districtwide art show features every campus and grade level in KISD, Blann said.
Artwork featured was entered in local and statewide competitions, and students created their artwork either in class or at home during quarantine, she said.
“Art is so important to our students,” Blann said. “Even during this time, we have students and families finding peace and harmony in their lives.”
The online KISD art show features two elementary school galleries, one middle school gallery and one high school gallery. Middle school and high school galleries are separated by school.
“Our world right now needs creative students,” Blann said. “We need people who are still seeing value in making our world a beautiful place.”
