Exhibitions of Student Art
The ArtWorks Gallery is devoted to temporary exhibitions of student art, inspired by work on view elsewhere in the Museum. Throughout the year, the Museum juries and hosts themed shows, and guidelines encourage teachers to develop related lesson plans. Instructions for upcoming exhibitions of student art are included below.
Art of Our Own
Through May 13, 2019
This exhibition of student art honors the creative growth of fifth-grade students from Wares Ferry Road Elementary School who have enjoyed their third consecutive year of weekly art classes taught by Museum professionals. In a new twist for the Learning Through Art Program, the students themselves curated art of their own, so be sure to check out this innovative show before it’s off the walls!
Growing Stronger Together
May 18 through August 4, 2019
Celebrating the sixth year of the Museum’s partnership with Wares Ferry Road Elementary School, Growing Stronger Together showcases one work of art from every third and fourth grader who participated in Learning Through Art this year. All works are inspired by pieces from the Museum’s collection and range from original paintings and vibrant collages to impressively constructed sculptures.
Student Art Collection
The Museum has purchased artwork from many of the student art exhibitions held in the ArtWorks Gallery, forming a significant student art collection that spans over 25 years of creative expressions by young artists. Work from the student art collection is on view at various times and places and was included in two recent exhibitions in DC hosted by the Department of Education.

ArtWorks Gallery student exhibitions are sponsored by Regions Bank and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts Junior Executive Board.
