Amador County Student Art Show 2024.


Amador County Arts Council has produced the Student Arts Show since 2012. Taking place at the Amador County Unified School District office, this month-long exhibit celebrates visual art pieces by local students in grades K through sixth. Held each spring, the Student Arts Show features student creations from Amador County Arts Council classes taught by Bruce Peccianti, Susan Ross, Elizabeth Grandsaert, Linda Toren, Meghan Joy O’Keefe, and additional Teaching Artists. This exhibit is your opportunity to view youth artwork created in the public school system and provided by Amador County Arts Council with support from the California Arts Council and Amador County Unified School District.

Past Student Artwork

“When I attended Jackson Elementary and Jackson Junior High, we did not have any art classes. As a young student wanting to pursue art, the lack of art classes was discouraging and a source of concern during my time in Amador County School District. It fills my heart with joy to know that these kids will not have to experience this feeling, and will instead get to benefit from a diverse arts program. I look forward to seeing what these budding student artists will create!”

Alyssa Vargas

President, Amador County Arts Council

“Arts are important to me because they help me to be creative and keep me from being bored. Art at school is awesome because I am having fun and learning so much more. I look forward to art projects, they help break up my days.”
