Quincy Student Art Goes Around the World



Now on display at Quincy Elementary in the Hall of Art:

Children's Art work from 19 countries (China, Romania, Armenia, Ukraine, Albania, Morocco, Georgia, Panama, Mongolia, Peru, Namibia, Ecuador, Togo, Cameroon, Birkina Faso, Kenya, Switzerland, Costa Rica and the Phillippines) are on display in the Hall of Art at Quincy Elementary School. Quincy student artists participated in a Global Art Exchange through One World Classrooms. The work of 53 Quincy student artists were selected to participate in the exchange.  Their work will be displayed in classrooms around the world. The work illustrates the culture and environment of the children's communities.

The exhibit will travel to the Kanza Cafe for display through the summer.  This exchange and exhibit were made possible through the generous support of the Topeka Public Schools’ Foundation.
