School Spirit

Celebrating Youth Art Month

March 1, 2019 - March 30, 2019

School Spirit: Celebrating Youth Art Month, now in its 17th year, showcases the talents of regional K-12 art students from over 40 area schools in a variety of media. This exhibition celebrates our region’s emerging artists and promotes awareness of the vital work done by art educators.

Art connects students to themselves and each other, reaches students in new ways, and transforms the learning environment into a place of discovery. Arts education develops creative problem solving, communication, critical thinking skills, and self-esteem; all are vital to the success of today’s youth.
