Back To Front Page


The 44th annual Porter County Arts-A-Budding student art exhibit was hosted recently at the Chapel of the Resurrection, Valparaiso University Campus. This exhibit is organized through volunteer efforts of the Porter County Visual Arts teachers and is sponsored by the Porter County Arts Commission in cooperation with the Brauer Museum of Art, Valparaiso University.

This is an exhibit of the best artwork produced by students in grades Kindergarten-8th in Porter County.

Visual Art teachers from across Porter County selected the top 11 pieces artwork done by their students during the past year. The art works done by these students include various media such as drawing, painting, printmaking, fiber art, sculpture, pottery and computer graphics.

These honored students, along with their families and friends, were invited to the opening award reception this past Sunday at the University. At the reception, students were publicly recognized for their accomplishment by name and received a ribbon. Each year the talents and accomplishments of more than 400 participants are recognized. Arts-A-Budding gives Porter County students an opportunity to exhibit their work and be rewarded for artistic merit.
