It’s that time of year when elementary school students get to show off their creative sides at the Vernon Public Art Gallery.
The artwork in the annual exhibition Art from the Heart is created by elementary students from the Vernon school district.
Under the guidance of their art teachers, the students are said to often portray the world that surrounds them, or in other cases, they directly reference their experiences through the language of visual forms.
“Their uninhibited approach to art-making reflects the students’ natural inclination and desire to communicate,” reads a release from the gallery.
The opening reception for Art from the Heart takes place at the VPAG Saturday, Jan. 10 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
The exhibition runs until Feb. 5.
