Pre-service art teachers conclude their time student teaching with the biennial Students of Students exhibition. The exhibition celebrates the hard work of pre-service art educators and the creative work of their students. After a semester of teaching area intermediate or high school students, the pre-service teachers are given the opportunity to select works by their students to include in the exhibition. In addition to featuring the work of their students, teachers are also asked to exhibit their own artwork that demonstrates their highest achievement in studio practices. Community members as well as students, parents, teachers, and administrators from area schools are invited to view the exhibition.
The Cabot Gallery is located in Brick City Building 3 at 215 West Mill Street, Springfield, Missouri, 65806. The gallery can be visited Monday–Friday 8 a.m.–6 p.m. Call 417-837-2330 for additional details.
