DOUGLAS COUNTY – Plan now to immerse yourself in drawings, paintings, photography and sculpture, in realistic and abstract forms, during this annual exhibit of student creativity.

The 2014 DCSD Art Show. featuring a kindergarten through 12th-grade exhibition, will be held April 10-13 at the Outlets at Castle Rock. Highlights of the exhibit include the display of student artwork on the jumbo screen that parallels I-25, "A Walk Through History," created by Douglas County art teachers, and the announcement of the 2014 graduate who will receive The Rocky Mountain School of Art and Design's $20,000 Community Scholarship.

The display is a collaborative effort between DCSD art teachers, the Outlets at Castle Rock, Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design and the Douglas County Educational Foundation. The event will be held in a 7,000 square foot events tent provided by the Outlets at Castle Rock.

A reception for the artists will take place on Friday, April 11 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Look for the large tent located in front of the Levi’s store. Refreshments for the reception will be provided through funding by the Douglas County Educational Foundation and Harry and David. The community is invited to join us in this celebration. Artwork can be viewed during regular Outlets at Castle Rock hours.
