New Visiting Artists Program Announced

The Loudoun Arts Council (LAC) and Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) are collaborating on an initiative for local visual artists to visit classrooms during the 2014-2015 school year. The Visiting Artists program will demonstrate that art isn't in the past or confined to textbooks, but that is happening here and now, and continuously evolving. Visiting artists will share their experience with art as a career or as a creative journey, and engage students in the process. Besides collaborating with art teachers to enrich the LCPS arts curriculum, participating artists will be able to practice speaking about their work and methods and refine their presentation skills.
