The Chatham Education Foundation (CEF) is excited to see one of its largest grants of the 2016-17 school year come to fruition, supporting the visual arts in the School District of the Chathams (SDOC). 

On Wednesday, May 31 and Thursday, June 1, the community is invited to join in the inaugural, Collaborative K-12 Chatham-Wide School District Art Show, at the Chatham Middle School upper gymnasium, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Showcasing student artwork and the visual arts education progression in the SDOC, the art teachers in each of the Chatham schools have worked all year collecting student artwork for display to make this event possible. The teachers themselves will also each be presenting one of their own original pieces.  Over 800 works of art will be displayed.
