Almond Acres students showcase art at Studios on the Park

– Almond Acres Charter Academy will be showcasing their students’ artwork as a culmination of their partnership with Studios on the Park in downtown Paso Robles. Throughout the 2015-2016 school year, many students had the opportunity to attend the “Kids Art Smart” program. Through this program, the students learned new art techniques from professional artists, and created a unique piece of art in a real working studio setting.

“AACA feels so fortunate to be included in the Kids Art Smart Program through Studios on the Park! All of our 1st through 6th grade students were able to participate in this unique program, and it provided a wonderful opportunity for them to be able to create a piece of art in a working studio which will be displayed professionally at Studios for friends, family and the community to enjoy.” said AACA Program Director Amy Baker.

In an effort to recognize the partnership between Studios on the Park and AACA and showcase the students’ work, an art show was held at Studios from April 15-17.
