Art Wave

“Art Wave” Student Art in the Stores in Uptown/Downtown

IMG_2556For the month of May, Historic Districts’ merchants are showcasing student artwork for “Art Wave!” The artwork is created in the Port Townsend School District in grades K-12. The annual art exhibit is on display at businesses in Uptown and Downtown with over 400 pieces of art installed as part of this promotion.

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 Salish Coast Elementary, 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.

PT Artscape is in its 20th year of providing visual and dramatic arts in the Port Townsend Public Schools, grades K-12. Consortium programs integrate the arts into the regular classrooms, help teachers enhance their curriculum through the arts, expand student access to and experience with the arts, and provide instruction and mentoring to artists who wish to teach their art. Over the years, program offerings have evolved with the changing and increasing interest and engagement of teachers. The Port Townsend School District is the lead agency for the Consortium activities which are funded through a grant from the Washington State Arts Commission
