About the Exhibition ...

Saturday Art School LogoSaturday Art School is an opportunity for children in the community to experience an open art studio atmosphere where they can create artwork and bring their ideas to life with Millersville University art education students assisting in their discovery and learning.

The work in this show was selected by the students who made the work.

At Saturday Art School, children made lots of choices about what they created, what materials they used, and whether to work on their own or with classmates. We designed Saturday Art School this way because we believe that choice is a powerful vehicle for critical thinking, creativity, and meaningful learning.

Saturday Art School teachers are experienced makers that are there to assist and encourage students. They did not prepare specific projects or examples for every student to create. Because of this, the work the children created may not look as refined as the art that they make when an adult is actively directing their work. We embrace this, knowing that when students are in charge of their work, really exciting learning and discovery takes place.

About the Artists ...
