The SEMO Arts Council is hosting a unique collection this month of their summer academy artwork. 12 local elementary and high school teachers and university art professors gathered to teach programs to young students and seniors. Students were able to expand their art horizons with a series of different class choices including ceramics, printmaking, sculpture and more. Arts Council Director Murielle Wyman tells KZIM-KSIM they also offered a few new unique classes. Students were able to apply for scholarships to take the program and the Arts Council provided some funding as well. The show is on display until the 25th. Alongside the academy work are pieces by the Visual Arts Cooperative. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday 10 to 4 PM.
