Awesome art show

Thanks so much to the students, parents, volunteers, and staff for a great night of celebrating children's art. Here are some pics of families enjoying the show together. Photo credits to my daughter Kinsey, who took over while I was busy gabbing!

One artwork from each grade level is selected for our school's permanent collection

Well said, Mary Love!


  1. I know you have said before...but what company frames and sells the frames for the student art?

  2. Congratulations on such a beautiful art show!! It looks like you have so much support from your community! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Have you been happy with the artome company? I am thinking about scheduling a show at my school.

  4. This is our second year using Artome. I wrote a good deal about it last year - The three best things about it are: 1. it showcases EVERY student's work at its best, in a white mat and black frame 2. it is relatively little work for me and an impressive display 3. it is a chance for our department to make a little extra money (we bought 2 ipads from last years profits) - and let me stress that we are not selling the ARTWORK, only the frames, for the parents' convenience. We promote it as a an art show, not a fundraiser.
    The drawbacks are very slight - you are limited to 9x12" art, either vertical or horizontal. That's about it, which isn't really a problem for me because the majority of our work fits that size limit. You can always do extra displays with larger pieces if you wish!
    I definitely recommend it and plan on keeping it an annual tradition.

  5. Thank you that was very helpful!
