Ninth grader Melissa Miller and 10th grader Ava Davoult had their artwork submitted into the New York State Art Teachers Association (NYSATA) 31st annual Legislative Student Art Exhibition. This Legislative Exhibit is the flagship event for Youth Art Month, celebrating the visual arts, encouraging support for quality art programs and promoting art material safety. The NYSATA, in partnership with NYSUT and in collaboration with New York State Legislators, organizes this exhibit annually. The goals of the exhibit are to showcase art programs and to give talented student artists in grades K-12 an opportunity to receive statewide recognition.

The academic discipline of art is a critical component of a child’s education. Skills developed through visual arts experiences are unlike any other academic subjects and include promoting problem-solving, creativity, observation and communication. The visual arts are also a therapeutic resource for releasing stress and an excellent means of self-expression for students. The student artwork can be found here:
