2017 Youth Art Month Artists

It is that time of year once again when we celebrate Art Education with the Youth Art Month Art Exhibit in Boston! Sponsored by the Massachusetts Art Education Association and Sargent Art, the exhibit will display artwork by 900+ Massachusetts students in grades K – 12. Art educators in the Mendon-Upton Regional School District have chosen six pieces each to submit to the exhibit. You can read about the exhibit, the artwork and the artists from all four schools at this link:

My grades 5 & 6 students whose work has been selected are pictured below. They are (left to right): Laura Piekarski, Sabrina Cassano, Alex Heather, Cameron Giles, Ashlyn Seligman, and Astrid Lee:
