Budding like lilacs this spring -- student artists, with three shows opening this week.

The Florin Group, downtown, hosts The Keyhole Show, featuring student work from the Colorado Springs School, with an opening reception Friday from 4 to 6 p.m. A silent auction of the work in the show will raise funds for local charity Urban Peak, a support project for homeless teens.

Down the street at the Pike Peak Community College's Downtown Studio campus, multimedia graphic design students will display their work at the Digital Art Show, starting with a Friday night opening reception from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Included in the show are illustrations, paintings, photography and digital media using a number of graphic design software programs.

And up on the bluffs to the north, the UCCS Gallery of Contemporary Art hosts the 2004 Student Art Exhibition, featuring a wide variety of work by UCCS art students. The juried show opens with a reception on Friday, 5-7:30 p.m., and will be up through May 21.

Despite cutbacks in arts funding across the state, dedicated teachers continue to provide instruction and inspiration to Colorado Springs students. Come out and show your support for the artists of tomorrow and for arts in education.
