Community Student
Art Exhibition 2022

Featuring works from Berrien, Cass  and Van Buren County
Elementary, Middle School and High School Students

The 2022 Community Student Art Exhibitions are proudly presented by Krasl Art Center (KAC) in partnership with the Berrien Regional Education Services Agency (RESA) and the Box Factory for the Arts.

Each year, these community partners work together to present two amazing community art exhibitions, one for elementary students and one for middle school and high school students. These art shows allow local students from Berrien, Cass, and Van Buren Counties to exhibit their artwork in a professional venue and have it viewed by hundreds of people in our communities.

New this year! All participating educators are invited to exhibit their artwork with their students in the first Community Teacher Art Exhibition that will happen alongside the Community Student Art Exhibitions.

  • Stonegate Plastic Surgery of Lakeland
  • South Shore Women’s Health Care
  • Paul & Dorothy Cayo in Memory of their Daughter, Sarah.

Additional exhibition support from:

  • Barrett & Driscoll Pediatrics
  • Framing provided by Papachi International Custom Framing.
