The “Art Wave” exhibit celebrates children’s creative expression through art and is a collaboration with participating Port Townsend businesses. The funds raised will help support diverse offerings by PT Artscape including the Teaching Artists Programs in Blue Heron School and Port Townsend High School, and professional development for teaching artists and classroom teachers. PT Artscape also supports Centrum’s Tales, Texts and Theater Program for the sixth grade, as well as special projects and materials.
Historic Districts’ merchants are showcasing student artwork for “Art Wave”—a colorful month-long exhibit of student art in the stores in May. The artwork is being created in the Port Townsend School District in grades K-12. The annual art exhibit is on display at businesses in Uptown and Downtown. Over 400 pieces of art are installed as part of this promotion. Look out for “Art Wave” donation jars in participating stores, all proceeds from the jars will go directly to art education programs in the Port Townsend School District.
