WAAM Education Program is thrilled to start 2021 with a show of work created by students from the Woodstock Elementary School. It has been almost a year since we have been able to share work in the Youth Exhibition Space, it’s hard to believe how much has changed for all of us. The dedication, resilience and creativity of the art teachers, students and families we work with has been astounding, we are so happy to be able to work once again with these incredible teachers. Thank you Roberta Ziemba and Falyn Dutcher, Woodstock Elementary Art teachers for all of your hard work, flexibility and professionalism.

Many Branches

We have invited all students from Woodstock Elementary to contribute a piece of their own choosing that they are proud of. We wanted to share with the community a glimpse into the reality of students who are adapting and creating during these unprecedented times. We also want to celebrate the families that have had to completely change their relationship to their children’s education, we are so proud to share this work with our community.

In addition, We are exhibiting artwork that has been a source of inspiration for many of our Education programs over the years in the Founders Gallery. These selections from our Permanent Collection have been shared with thousands of local students, teachers and families through our education program for the last 15 years. We are excited to share these works with the community alongside student artwork.
