Student Art to Be on Display at PPS Central Office

Starting with the December First Friday Artwalk, Central Office will begin hosting student art shows. The first exhibit will open on Friday, Dec. 1, Central Office, at 353 Cumberland Avenue. Parents, staff and community members are invited to come from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.  to enjoy the artwork lining the halls and in the glass display windows along Cumberland Avenue.

This first show will feature the work of talented students from Deering and Portland high schools as well as PATHS; King Middle School; and East End, Longfellow, Presumpscot, Reiche and Talbot elementary schools. As with any of our student art shows, this exhibit will also serve as a way to showcase the amazing teaching ongoing  in PPS art classrooms.

In addition, two paintings that have been generously donated to the Portland Public Schools by Angela Adams, a renowned Portland-based artist and designer, will be on display.

This exhibit will be up for three or four months. Moving forward, the plan is to regularly rotate the student art shows every few months to give other students an opportunity to display their work. Openings of new shows also will take place on a First Friday.
