Kids’ Art Rocks! is a program of the Tibbits Foundation that mats and frames student artwork for lease by area businesses for a year. Prior to their lease, artwork hangs in the Tibbits gallery during the Spring ArtWalk. A call for work goes out early in the spring of each year. Kids Art Rocks’ facebook page is located here.
Prior to 2018, teachers would submit their best work to this program. In 2018, the program was opened up to allow for submission by anyone completing K-12 curriculum. This allowed for a broader scope of work (almost 60 pieces!) from homeschool groups or those attending schools outside of Branch County. All pieces were then judged by a panel of judges, and the top pieces were then matted and/or framed along with student bios. All winning pieces can be found HERE.
