Then Norton Museum of Art invites middle and high school teachers from Palm Beach County public, private, parochial and charter schools to submit students’ artwork for consideration to be included in the upcoming exhibition Drawing Transformed in the Chris and Bernard Marden Community Gallery from February 25 – May 15, 2022.
Drawing has commonly been associated with pencil and paper, but artists have sketched with sticks in caves, spray painted graffiti on walls, drawn using wires to make three-dimensional works of art, drawn through animation in film and used pixels to compose an image on computer screens. This exhibition provides students with the opportunity to look beyond the traditional drawing practice, considering materials and diverse methods to reimagine how lines move through space.
This year we are especially interested in representations on a wide variety of concepts, techniques, and approaches from students working on any art form to represent drawing, even performance!

The Norton values its partnerships with schools and educators, respects and admires the essential role of teachers, and is delighted to offer Florida educators, pre-K through college, free admission with presentation of a valid school ID.
The Norton offers free professional development opportunities and K-12 educator events throughout the year that provide teachers with creative ways to help students connect with art using the Museum’s collection in conjunction to Florida State Standards. Sessions can include gallery exploration, interactive activities, discussion, and ideas that can be implemented in the classroom. These events are also a great time to socialize and learn more about the Museum!
We also offer free, customized professional development workshops for your school. You can learn more about upcoming events on our website below or by contacting the Norton’s school and teacher programs team.
