Capture Art Student Exhibition at MacArthur Center until June 7
YAV sent two teaching artists into the classroom to co-teach with a Norfolk Public School art teacher to help students make connections between visual art and live jazz music and to create pieces of visual art that reflect their modern interpretation of celebrated artists Romare Beardon’s core themes. The pieces created by the students are on display in the Live 360 Gallery at MacArthur Center in Norfolk until June 7th. Don’t miss out on these stunning works of art!
