Naples Art Association Young Art Students’ Work Adorns City Hall

ARTScool Student shows her homemade paper book

Paper making was one of the classes offered during 2012 ARTScool. This student made one sheet that included seeds that would grow when she planted the paper.

Every summer, hundreds of students buzz with excitement in The von Liebig Art Center classrooms. They’re learning more about their favorite types of art and discovering new favorites. To top it all off, a selection of their best work will be put on display for the community to see at the end of the summer.

Nothing is more brilliant than first seeing a child discover an artistic talent. With more than 800 enrollments this summer, there were many inspirational moments!

The exhibition is installed on the ground floor and second level and features two-dimensional work and sculpture by 48 students who attended the Naples Art Association‘s 14th Annual ARTScool Summer Arts Program. The full-day and half-day program offered theme and media based classes held in The von Liebig Art Center from June 11 through Aug. 10, 2012. Children this summer also helped create the world’s longest clay chain.
