About 100 student artists from the Fort Mill School District will have their work displayed and celebrated Wednesday night at a unique show at Discovery Education World Headquarters in Charlotte.
A press release from the school district explains all the exciting details:
On Wednesday, November 6, from 5:30 pm to 8 pm , Fort Mill School District and Discovery Education, the Charlotte-based leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources, engaging content, and professional learning for K-12 classrooms, will partner to host a unique Art Show highlighting the artistic accomplishments of students districtwide.
Invited to attend this unique event held in Discovery Education’s Charlotte world headquarters are the approximately 100 Fort Mill School District student-artists whose work is on display, their parents, caregivers, and teachers, Fort Mill School District administrators and school board members, and members of the Discovery Education team. Media is also invited to attend this event.
The Fort Mill School District has placed a special emphasis on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) education and each piece of artwork showcased at this first-ever event connects to that theme. Students across all grade levels contributed paintings, drawings, sculpture, and other types of art to this exposition, and each piece was selected by district art teachers for inclusion. Following the show, the student art will remain on display at the Discovery Education office until the Spring of 2020.
Discovery Education’s services are available in approximately half of U.S. classrooms and primary schools in the United Kingdom and reach over 5 million educators and 51 million students in more than 90 countries worldwide. Inspired by the global media company Discovery, Inc., Discovery Education partners with districts, states, and like-minded organizations to empower teachers with customized solutions that support the success of all learners.
Discovery Education has partnered with the Fort Mill School District since 2016 to create dynamic, digital classrooms that prepare all students for success beyond graduation.
