The City of Reno McKinley Galleries are proud to host “Art Matters,” an exhibition of work by the Art Teachers of the Washoe County School District (WCSD).  The art featured ranges from ceramics to watercolor, from jewelry to oil painting.  Teachers from grades 6 through 12 are represented.  Their works span the spectrum of media and aesthetic.  Digitally manipulated black and white photographs sit between small, abstract pen and ink drawings and large-scale acrylic portraits.  The works are as diverse as the teachers who created them.

The WCSD art teachers “serve over 4,500 students annually in their studio classrooms.”  Through art, they help their students build observational and problem solving skills.  They teach their students introspection and empathy through the lens of creativity.  To learn more about the WCSD and their mission, visit their website.

Gallery East and West, located in McKinley Arts & Culture Center art two of three galleries operated by the City of Reno. To learn more please visit our website.
