Robby Wood, art professor and gallery coordinator, has expressed that this is an event for the area schools as well as the community.

Art teachers from The Woodlands High School, College Park High School, Oak Ridge High School, Conroe High School, Montgomery High School and Magnolia High School will be featured.
