It's a talented group of artists that lead Farmington schools' art program, from the cutting and coloring of kindergarten through the advanced classes of digital technology, applied and fine art.
Those teachers and a select group of Farmington students gathered Thursday evening to celebrate the best student artwork in the district. About 150 people, including principals, teachers, relatives and students attended the reception.
Each of the 13 teachers selected five students in their classes to be honored in the K-12 Select Art Exhibit, now on display at the Farmington Library.
The exhibit shows a continuum of growth in both skill and artistic vision.
"We wanted to highlight the growth from kindergarten through the senior year. Parents can see the progression of thinking. We want students to think like artists. It’s wonderful for the parents, the students and teachers," said Leslie Flowers, department leader of fine and applied arts.
The exhibit contains about 65 pieces and will be on display in the Community Room of the Farmington Library through the month of February.
