Every year Groton Central School is proud to host an annual art exhibit. The exhibit features works from students in grades K-12. All students enrolled in our art program are represented in this exhibit. A highlight of the exhibit is our student demonstrators. Students volunteer to demonstrate a variety of media (both two and three dimensional examples for exhibit goers. Some of the highlighs of Exhibit 2010 are on the presentation in the center of the screen. We hope you will enjoy browsing, and that you will join us for Exhibit 2011 on Tuesday, May 17, 2011 in the middle school gymnasium.
