Each spring we auction off beautiful 6″x6″ art tiles from beloved local artists as well as our very own Children of the Valley students.
Join us as we kick off our 2021 Annual Art Auction during a live Facebook event Friday, May 7th at 7pm! This will be the official start time for our online art auction as well – so mark your calendar now!
During our multi-day online auction you’ll have the opportunity to bid on beautiful works of art from beloved local artists such as Ben Mann, Jennifer Bowman, and Maria Wickwire as well as art from our very own COV students. You don’t want to miss your opportunity to collect one each year!
In addition to the beautiful donations from our local community of artists, it’s always with great honor that we present the heartfelt and intentional art from our students. At the beginning of every school year, we challenge our students to dream big – to envision their futures and how they want their lives to be no matter how challenging their current circumstances may be. Over the next nine months, we guide the children as they develop their ideas into a plan for success. An essential component of this framework is acknowledging and honoring where each child comes from – their roots, family, culture, and personal identity. This is the inspiration behind each child’s art tile.
