purposes of the Pence Gallery. Frequent

each show. The Gallery also offers an several drawing workshops for adults, provides
ArtSmart and KidsCreate programs for children, and

Students enjoy learning about the art on display with a docent, and put their ideas to work in their own art project. Our artists introduce new concepts, materials, and themes in the visual arts. Choose from four projects designed to stimulate your students’ creativity and connect art to different disciplines.
