Every year, The West Hartford Art League partners with the West Hartford Public Schools to exhibitstudent work in our two galleries on Buena Vista Road. ArtBeat showcases work from students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
Conard and Hall High School Mural:
Students from Conard High School and Hall High School partnered with the Art League and Jerry's Artarama of West Hartford in the fall of 2008 to design and paint a mural on the side of Jerry's Artarama, as part of ArtWalks 5th Anniversary. The students worked weekends and after school on Wednesdays under the direction of art teachers Sheri Ellis from Conard High School, and Joanne Barry Dutro from Hall High School.
The mural is located at the corner of New Britain Ave, on the side of Jerrys Artarama.
Light Up the Night:
Every year, the West Hartford Art League raises money for the West Hartford Food Pantry and Foodshare through its sale of luminaries. The luminaries are lit on the hillside as part of this fundraising event.
