Nearly 50 unique and colorful pieces of artwork created by local students are now on display in Galleria Valéncia at the Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA), 1164 West Howard Street. The artwork was created by students of Jeffrey Morgan, who teaches kindergarten through fourth grade at Washington-Kosciusko, Goodview and Rollingstone elementary schools.
Throughout April, visitors can view creative works that represent lessons on famous artists and their styles, including Modigliani-style self-portraits, Rousseau stylized landscapes, and pieces inspired by the classic book “Harold and the Purple Crayon.” Other projects explore color relationships and a variety of art materials and techniques such as string painting, still life, and collage.
The public is invited to visit Galleria Valéncia during regular office hours and during any programming. To check scheduling, call 507-453-5500.
MCA is in the process of setting up art shows for the 2018-19 school year. If schools, groups, or professional artists are interested in displaying their work, contact Megan at email@example.com.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
