Learn something with What Those Who Teach Can Do

As a part of the exhibition, some of the artwork includes painting, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics, video, design, digital media, film, photography, illustration, and fiber arts.

"We're celebrating what these educators do in our community by hosting their work in our gallery" said Louise Stienkeoway, president of The Art Institute of Tampa. "Teachers work so hard to cultivate the skills and talents of our area's high school students, inspiring them every day. Now we want to shine a light on their personal talents."

A public reception at The Art Institute of Tampa is being held to honor the hard-working men and women who pass art down to Tampa's next generation of artists. The event is free of charge and is a great opportunity to support Tampa's local artists.

"The truth is that teachers do so much, more than we see," said President Stienkeoway.

Opening reception for What Those Who Teach Can Do is April 17, 6-8 p.m. at the Art Institute of Tampa, 4401 N. Himes Ave., Suite 150, Tampa. For more information, visit www.artinstitutes.edu/tampa or call 866-703-3277. Admission is free.

The old adage goes: "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach". That, however, is likely a poorly educated idea. The Art Institute of Tampa surely thinks so, as their spotlight on local art teachers goes to show. What Those Who Teach Can Do pays tribute to talented high school art and media educators with an art exhibit, focusing on their own artistic creations.
