Galleria Valéncia at Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) is filled with unique pieces of artwork created by Jeffery Morgan’s art students at Winona Area Public Schools. The selected pieces are from kindergarten through fourth-grade art classrooms at Washington-Kosciusko Elementary, Goodview Elementary, and Rollingstone Community schools. Galleria Valéncia is located at 1164 West Howard Street.
During the month of April, visitors to the gallery will enjoy colorful artwork that was created using a variety of mediums and elements of design. Morgan has been teaching elementary art for over 10 years, and he enjoys seeing the great perceptual and developmental growth in his students. “Along with the Minnesota standards in visual arts, art classrooms teach problem solving, divergent thinking, responsibility and appreciation for the creative expression of others different from ourselves,” Morgan said.
Visitors are encouraged to sign the guestbook, so that the young artists know who attended the show. MCA is in the process of setting up art shows for the upcoming school year.
