Educating children about the arts, and offering them access to gallery and exhibition space, has been a key component of our mission at the Morean Arts Center. Since 1998, we have worked with Pinellas County schools to create Word & Image: Arts and Education Partnership. The Morean hosts four of these juried exhibits each year, including work from students at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
Each year, students are challenged to create works of art based on a particular theme, and to incorporate a written statement within the piece.
