Cecil County Public Schools

Continuous Improvement: Everyone. Every Way. Every Day.

  • What Is It?

    Arts Express is a program that allows us to offer fine arts opportunities to groups of Cecil County Public Schools (CCPS) students.  This program has provided transportation to a number of events over the years to hundreds of public school students.

    Listed below are the offerings for the 2016-17 school year!

  • Juried Art Exhibition

    In October 2016, each middle and high school is given the opportunity to send students to the Cecil County Arts Council to view this free exhibit.  The students peruse this exhibit with a questionnaire to complete, followed by a discussion of the exhibit.

    In the 2014 exhibit, three CCPS teachers, Doug Barry, Carol Mangano, and Jennifer Walters, had works exhibited also!  It was exciting for the students to see their teachers as artists!


  • Photography Show

    In November 2016, each high school is invited to send students to view the Photography Show at Cecil County Arts Council.  This is also a free exhibit with transportation provided by Arts Express.


  • Winter Art Show Visitation

    In January 2017, each elementary, middle, and high school is invited to send students to view the Winter Art Show at the Cecil County Arts Council.  The Winter Art Show is an exhibit of artworks by students from each CCPS elementary, middle, and high school. 

    Local artists serve as adjudicators, awarding 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards, as well as Honorable Mention awards.  This special awards program is sponsored by the GFWC Woman's Club of Cecil County, an affiliate of the Maryland Federation of Women's Clubs.  The local club provides the awards to the students whose art work places first, second, and third in their respective categories.  They will represent Cecil County in the Eastern Shore District Program in March 2017.  Maryland's Eastern Shore winners will go on to the Maryland Federation of Women's Clubs Show in April 2017.
