Students from Johnson, Moyer and Woodfill elementary schools have been selected to exhibit their work in the annual Fort Thomas Independent Schools District Art Show held at the Fort Thomas/Carrico Branch of the Campbell County Public Library.

An Opening Day reception will be held on March 22, 2015, from 2-5pm, and the show will continue to be on display through March 24, 2015.

Selected students from each of the three elementary schools will have their 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional artwork on display. The artwork featured demonstrates the outstanding talent of our young artists. This year most of the artworks have been planned, designed and created by the students with teacher guidance.

This is a new approach in the elementary classrooms that focuses on student-directed learning which develops independent learners and critical thinkers. Instead of the teachers supplying the answer and a specific project, the students are being asked to create more meaningful art. They are making more personal connections through Choice-Based Instruction and studio centers available for student exploration and idea development.


Additionally, the Highlands High School Chamber Orchestra will be performing live during the event on Sunday, March 22.

This display in our community will be open to the public at our local Fort Thomas library during normal library hours.
