Art of Being a Military Child
Art of Being a Military Child is a partnership with Virginia Beach City Public Schools, the School Liaison Officers from JEB Little Creek-Fort Story and NAS Oceana, and Lynnhaven Mall modeled after the Military Child Education Coalition’s annual Call for the Arts. This year marks the 10th annual Exhibit and Celebration, an event established to recognize April as the Month of the Military Child. The contest, open to all VBCPS students (military and civilian), began in 2013 in Virginia Beach. This year will offer a unique opportunity to view student artwork both at Lynnhaven Mall and through the website. Thank you to all the teachers and students who supported Art of Being a Military Child.
