March – and April for that matter – is the month of the student artist in Loudoun County.
And to celebrate many Loudoun County schools, businesses and politicians are doing their part to highlight students' works. Throughout the county, residents can see – and in some cases buy – these artworks.
The most recent event kicked off March 20 at Inova Loudoun Hospital in Lansdowne where the art of Douglass School students went on display. The art will hang in patient care areas until May 24 – a tradition at Inova for more than 15 years.
In keeping with tradition, the annual 10th District Congressional Art Show, featuring works from area students, will kick off at 6 p.m. March 21 at the George Washington University Virginia Science and Technology campus in Loudoun.
A winner will be announced at 7 p.m. during this free event. The winning piece will displayed in the U.S. Capitol for a year alongside other "Best in Show" entries from other congressional districts.
All submitted art work will remain on display at the campus until April 22.
Students at Middleburg Academy will get a chance to showcase their work April 4-28 at Franklin Park Arts Center. The Middleburg Academy Student Arts Exhibition will include more than 25 pieces of artworks, including ceramics, painting, drawing, photography and mixed media. The exhibit is free and open to the public 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. A reception and awards presentation, also open the public, will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. April 14.
At Sterling Middle School through the month of March educators are using the morning announcements to feature art students to advocate the importance of art education.
