Why: The goal of the art show is to showcase the talents of Pasco County Schools teacher-artists, and strengthen their credibility as educators by showing students and the public that they practice what they teach.

How: Pasco Schools teacher-artists from grades K-12 will exhibit a diverse array of 2-D and 3-D artwork that embodies their creativity and craftsmanship.
