of youth art month and the work comes directly
from our CCISD students. (Martha Fair)
Youth Art Month is an art exhibit.
It’s an event that’s held statewide throughout Texas
and it’s a time to showcase students’ artwork
that has been done throughout the year and
get them into the public eye.(Shelby Purdy)

The art iscoming from the students.
It is led by the teacher,guided by the teacher and
based on the projectsthat they’re doing, the
different projects thatthey’re doing
in covering the elementsand principles of art.(Martha Fair)
Taking art and other fine arts courses in school
has been shown through research to increases students
critical thinking skills, problem solving skills
and then of course, the creative aspect of it.It allows the students
a venue to work out emotionsand things that they’re
dealing with in their own lives.It’s just, it speaks to
and nurtures the whole child. The exhibit
will be on display for the month of March.
