For the past several weeks, Provo City School District has been working tirelessly to develop...
Last month, PCSD National Art Honors Society students were able to teach local preschoolers how to make creative masks.
The preschoolers, from Mountainland Headstart Preschool, came to the ArtCetera student-run gallery with their fathers to learn how to create masks. The PCSD art students were able to use paper plates, paint, markers, feathers and many other creative materials to help the preschoolers make their masks. Not only this, but they also read stories to the students before they began their creative process and students were also able to explore books on their own as well.
This activity is just one of the many activities that are constantly happening in the ArtCetra gallery. ARTcetra was formed in 2017 when the Provo Towne Center Mall approached James Rees, art teacher at Provo High School, to extend an invitation to create a permanent display for his students’ art work. Since then, this art gallery rotates through 5 to 6 exhibits each year and even hosts lectures from guest artists. The gallery has received numerous recognition and has become a great place for students to proudly display their work and initiate great events with the community.
Great job to all of the students and teachers involved with this fun activity! The next time you’re at the Provo Towne Center Mall, make a stop by the ARTcetra gallery to view the latest exhibit and find out information about upcoming events.
