Arts-A-Budding March 4-16 - 3/23

Arts[-A-Budding 2023

Arts A Budding is an annual display of the best artwork produced by students in Porter County. Each Visual Arts teacher is asked to select the eleven best pieces of art produced within their art program. 

These honored students, along with their families and friends, are invited to the award reception. Awards are presented in the chapel (Please remember that hats and food are prohibited in the chapel area). At this time, every student artist will be recognized publicly by name and will come forward to receive an award. Last year the reception was attended by approximately 1,000 people.
