Community Virtual Art Exhibit

Every Thursday we host a Community Virtual Art Exhibit, a weekly creative outlet for all. The exhibit was created to give students, young and old, an outlet for creative expression and encouragement. 

If you or your child would like to participate, please email one photo of the artwork, along with a first name (and grade and school if applicable) to Amy at apagan@plano.gov. All people, regardless of age or location, are invited to apply.
