Public Opening Reception: December 14, 6-9pm
Instruct(art) is the 6th annual FCPS Artist-Teacher Exhibition.
For many years a primary goal of the Fairfax County Public Schools Fine Arts Office has been to seek out and hire candidates who are not only great teachers, but also great artists. Today, there are more than 350 visual art teachers in FCPS, many of whom continue to practice art-making while sharing their expertise with students. The FCPS Fine Arts Office is proud to partner with the Workhouse Arts Center to organize an exhibition showcasing the talents and artistic achievements of these artist-teachers.
This year, 41 artist-teachers will be represented by 50 artworks in the exhibition. These artworks were selected from over 200 submissions by juror Sarah Eckhardt, Assistant Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art.
