"Once again, elementary month in the Pryor Gallery is one big smile," said Lucy Kuykendall, curator and director of Columbia State's Pryor Art Gallery. "It is obvious that the teachers plan projects that direct students in their creative learning skills. We have talented teachers and students on display."

The exhibit consists of a variety different mediums including but not limited to clay sculptures, yarn art, collage, pastels, watercolor, and beaded jewelry.

Schools included in the exhibit are Zion Christian Academy, Agathos School of Columbia, Marvin Wright Elementary School, Mt. Pleasant Elementary and Middle Schools, Riverside Elementary School, Santa Fe Unit School, Spring Hill Elementary School, and J.E. Woodard Elementary School.
