The Bay Area’s largest professional arts school, CalColor Academy, celebrated its 10th anniversary with an art show exhibiting the work of its students.
Over 7,000 visitors came to the two-day event on May 13 and 14, which showcased over 2,000 pieces of art by the Academy’s students, and 50 by CalColor’s teachers.
The exhibition covered various artistic disciplines, including painting, drawing, paper sculpture, mixed media, and digital art. The art pieces were arranged according to themes and styles.
During the event reception, the Academy presented awards and prizes to the 2023 NASA student art contest winners, the 2023 Scholastic Art Awards winners, and the 10th anniversary sticker competition winners.
Cupertino Mayor Hung Wei also stopped by the event to help present awards.
“This exhibition is a testament to the importance of art education,” she said. “It’s so inspiring to see these young students pursuing their passion and producing such beautiful and thought-provoking pieces.”
CalColor Academy is the largest extracurricular art school in the Bay Area, serving over 3300 students ages 4-18. The Academy has over six branch locations, including Cupertino, Mountain View, and San Jose.
