March is Youth Art Month, and is a time when educators across the nation promote the visual arts and art education in our country.
Congratulations to the following Ralph M.T. Johnson School students, Brianna Russo, Tyler Lombardi, Virginia Steen, Melanie Villaviciencio, and Perri Englund, who have each had an outstanding work of art selected to be a part of the 2014 Connecticut Art Educator’s Association Youth Art Celebration.
The CAEA Youth Art Celebration is a K-12 art show for all students in Connecticut. Their work will be on display at the West Woods Upper Elementary School in Farmington CT from March 3- March 21, 2014. The show reception is Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 1 – 3 p.m.
I have been teaching art at Ralph M.T. Johnson School since 2001. I hope to encourage my students to use their creative experiences and become innovative explorers.
