2021 DCPS Arts Experience

 

Visual Arts

For visual arts experience, teachers are encouraged to submit all work they wish to highlight at this end of year district exhibit. We will offer two formats for the student work to exhibit; 1. A city-wide arts website for all approved submissions, and 2. The interactive 3D virtual exhibit space. The 3D space will be limited in size capacity, so submissions that cannot fit into this platform will be offered on the website. Photographs, videos, and sound recordings are all welcome.
