Southbury Public Library Showcases School Art Work During Youth Art Month in March
Region 15 schools is observing Youth Art Month again this year with the display of local student art work in the Gloria Cachion Gallery from Tuesday, March 4 until Thursday, March 27, 2014.
Art created by students from Gainfield Elementary School, Pomperaug Elementary School, and Rochambeau Middle School will be displayed. Held annually, Youth Art Month emphasizes the value of art education for all children and encourages support for quality school art programs.
Region 15 is proud to have collaborated with the Southbury Public Library for over twenty-five years, displaying creative art work during Youth Art Month.
“Art education develops self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self-expression, cooperation with others, and creative and critical thinking skills–skills vital to our children’s growth,” said Mrs. Sarjeant. “We are very grateful to the Southbury Library for allowing us to have an art gallery there during Youth Art Month. I encourage all the residents to stop by and view the wonderful pieces.”
