2012 - Putting Myself in the Picture
ArtLink 2011-2012 Theme Assignment:
We asked our participating artists to illustrate an aspect of their culture that is particularly meaningful to them and to put themselves somewhere in their art piece.
This exhibition highlights the talents of over 170 young artists from 24 countries. Their work was selected from well over 3000 pieces that were produced as part of Creative Connections’ ArtLink program for the 2011-12 school year.
