Summer is a chance for teachers, not just students, to let their hair down and explore their creative side. This year the Rockdale County Public Schools Employee Art Show is titled “School’s Out” and plans to span over the last three weeks of June. This art exhibition will be put on by local educators and take place in the Olde Town Gallery and Studio.
RCPS employees wishing to share their work must send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday June 11. All mediums or art work are acceptable as long as they are appropriate. The pieces will be picked and placed in the gallery for exhibition; installation will be on June 13 from 5pm-7pm The show will give the artists not only the opportunity to showcase their work, but they can also sell it to those who are wishing to buy their pieces.
Those who work for RCPS are also invited to volunteer and help run the art show from 2pm-6pm on June 15, 22, 23, 29, and 30. On June 15 from 4pm-8pm, the exhibition will be coinciding with the Olde Town Concert Series, which will put volunteers in high demand.
This show is put on in hopes to present the surprising talents of RCPS employees. Katy King, one of the coordinators of the show and art teacher at General Ray Davis Middle School, says, “It is amazing to see the applicants submitting work- we have secretaries, teachers, coordinators, school nurses, and counselors submitting artwork. It's amazing to see all the hidden talent that we were not aware was hidden across the county.”
There is no cost to view the exhibition. All who are able are welcome to come out and help support the show. Any questions and information can be found by contacting Katy King at 770-388-5675 or emailing email@example.com.
