Next week, the Indian Trail Town Hall will once again be adorned with artwork from local elementary school students.
The Student Art Show will be open to residents on:
- Thursday, March 10, from 5-8 p.m.
- Friday, March 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Saturday, March 12, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Each elementary school was invited to submit up to 40 pieces of artwork, giving local art students the opportunity to exhibit their work for all in the community to enjoy. This year’s participating schools are Antioch, Hemby Bridge, Indian Trail, Poplin, Porter Ridge, Sardis, and Shiloh Valley elementary schools, Shiloh Valley Primary School, as well as Metrolina Christian and Union Preparatory academies. Artwork from a local homeschool student will also be on display.
The Student Art Show was one of the programs developed for the Educate Through Art Initiative, and the first exhibit was held in March 2013. The Town chose March in recognition of National Student Art Month. In the first year, only five elementary schools participated. The event has grown to include 10 schools and more than 300 pieces of artwork.
“After having to take a year’s hiatus due to COVID, the Student Art Show is back and will be bigger than ever,” said Hayden Kramer, Indian Trail’s parks and recreation director. “We have so many talented student artists in the Indian Trail area, and we are honored to host this exhibit to showcase their work each year. We looked forward to welcoming the students, their teachers, and their families to Town Hall.”
Town Hall is located at 315 Matthews-Indian Trail Road.
