Call for Submissions

Nashville art teachers may submit their artwork now through Sunday, October 3, to be considered for inclusion in Beyond the Classroom. Frist curators and outside members of the art community will review submissions and jury this exhibition.



Nashville Art Teachers: Beyond the Classroom salutes the heroic efforts of teachers during the challenging circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic. It features the work of elementary, middle, and high school art teachers working in Davidson County and is presented concurrently with Alma W. Thomas: Everything is Beautiful. Thomas (1891–1978), the first African American woman to have a painting enter the collection of the White House, was an art teacher in Washington, DC, public schools for thirty-eight years.
