Ponte Vedra Public Education Foundation to host ArtWorks celebration May 1


More than 150 families will enjoy artwork created by local elementary and middle-school students at the annual ArtWorks celebration, to be held at 1 p.m. May 1 at the Sawgrass Marriott.

Sponsored by the Ponte Vedra Public Education Foundation, the free, public event will display original artwork created by K-8 students from Ocean Palms and PVPV/Rawlings elementary schools, Valley Ridge Academy and Landrum Middle School. One student from each school will also be chosen to have his or her artwork displayed on billboards outside PVPV/Rawlings and Ocean Palms.

Each year, art teachers select works created by their students. Professional artists are then brought in to choose which pieces will be exhibited during the ArtWorks show. More than 150 personalized certificates are awarded at the event, with gift certificates for art supplies presented to proficient Landrum and VRA middle school art students.
