“Egg” by Allen Chen, King’s Academy

 

In the first few years of the ArtCenters existence, founder Christopher Norton and his staff realized the importance of encouraging young people to pursue their ingenuity and expand their world by exploring the incredible realm of artistic creation.  Since the first K-12 exhibition, the ArtCenter has reached out to all of the public and private schools in Palm Beach and Martin counties to encourage the art teachers to share their students work with the community.
