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 R.M.T. Johnson School students, Isabella Donatucci, Nicholas DeLuise, Isabelle Beers, Emelin Garcia, and Killian Mead, who have had an outstanding work of art selected to be a part of the 2013 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 4- March 23, 2013. The show reception will be on Saturday, March 2013 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.
