This Month: RCC Showcases Reston Students’ Artwork

This March nine Reston schools will showcase art from students at the Reston Community Center Lake Anne and Hunters Woods locations.

The exhibits are a part of Youth Art Month, a national observance organized by the Council for Art Education, which has been celebrated since 1961.

Works by students from Aldrin, Armstrong, Dogwood, Forest Edge, Hunters Woods, Lake Anne, Terraset and Sunrise Valley Elementary Schools will be showcased at RCC Lake Anne from March 3 to April 2 in the Jo Ann Rose Gallery and 3D Gallery. A reception will be held March 11 from 2-4 p.m.

Works from Langston Hughes Middle School will also be on display at RCC Hunter Woods from March 1-31.

The mediums used by students in kindergarten through eighth grade include watercolor, chalk and oil pastels.

“This is my absolute favorite time in our exhibition schedule,” wrote RCC Arts Education Director Cheri Danaher in a press release. “We are able to celebrate the work of our students and the importance of art education in our schools and community at large.”
