In celebration of Youth Art Month, the Purcellville Arts Council will sponsor a student art show each weekend in March. Starting Saturday, Mar. 5, the historic Train Station in Purcellville will be filled with artwork by area Middle School students.
In conjunction with Loudoun County Public School’s One To The World program, artwork is being brought from the schools out into the community. Harmony Middle School art teacher Lori DeMark states, “This is a fantastic opportunity for the students to display their work in a gallery setting; it is also a chance for the public to see art created by truly talented kids.” Harmony Middle School will be the first two weekends in March and Blue Ridge Middle School will be the last two weekends. Blue Ridge Middle School art teacher Liz O’Neill hopes that the community takes advantage of the opportunity to see artwork outside of the school, “It is our intention to display a variety of work from grades 6 – 8 and we think the public will really enjoy the different techniques of each student.”
The art shows will run each Saturday from 10am to 3pm and on Sundays from noon to 3pm throughout the month of March.
