The College of Education’s Art Extravaganza began in 2004 as an initiative to spotlight the artwork of exceptional P-12 art students in the region, many of whom are taught by Georgia Southern University alumni. The exhibit is on display in the College of Education’s second floor hallway gallery. Each spring, a new exhibit opens and the artwork remains on display for one year. The Art Extravaganza is sponsored by the College of Education’s Partnership Council headed by faculty member Christine Draper, Ph.D.
The Opening Exhibit and Reception for College of Education’s Art Extravaganza is held in February of each year. To view the guidelines for art submission and information for previous events, click here
