Studies continue to prove that the arts are an important component of every child’s education; teaching many skills and values that cannot be found in academics alone. Students who study the arts are well-rounded, successful, and better equipped to enter the work force of tomorrow. The public is encouraged to support these aspiring young artists by attending the artists’ reception on Apr. 16 and visiting the gallery Tuesday-Friday 10am-4pm or by appointment.
