The show features the works of students from 2nd to 12th grade, representing all four Radford City schools.

These talented young artists are showcasing work that was created in the classroom where they diligently learned about a variety of art movements, styles, and mediums.

Some students also submitted work that was created outside of the classroom, allowing their creativity and talent to shine.

Works from McHarg and Belle Heth were created under the direction of Michelle Saunders and Ashley Syphrett; Dalton Intermediate, under the direction of Kristy Bryant; and Radford High School, under the instruction of Savannah Leeman.
