The art went on display in the lobby of the San Diego County Office of Education in early April and stayed up until May 31 at the closing reception.

It was advertised as “juried” but there were no awards. Students received a certificate for participating which was nice. It was great to see so many student art pieces from all over the county.

Teachers could only submit eight pieces from their schools. Because I had two sites this year, I entered fifteen pieces: eight from one site and seven from the other.

As Tim the SDAEA President says, art teachers do not get compensated for entering art shows for their students. They do it because they know the value of having artists and audiences interact with art.

It was a lot of extra work for me. I spent two entire afternoons tracking down the mat board then a whole day mounting and cutting and labeling. entire afternoon but it always makes me smile to see student art displayed  and that is why I keep doing it even though so few students ever attend these events.
