Keep ART in schools!

I find myself on the run again today, the weather is so nice here that the outdoors is pulling at me to get some much needed spring clean-up and sprucing up done! But came across this in the paper this week and thought it was a wonderful positive story of some very talented young people that I wanted to share.

BR students’ art takes district firsts

Three East Baton Rouge Parish public school students won first-place awards in the 2011 Louisiana School Boards Association’s District Level Art Contest held in January. The winners go on to the state competition representing the East Baton Rouge School Board at the LSBA Convention at the Crowne Plaza Wednesday through Friday. Artwork will be displayed at the convention.

Each piece of artwork had to represent Louisiana and be created with regulation media (oil, acrylic, watercolor, pen and ink, charcoal, pastel, crayon, colored pencil, batik or stitchery).

First Place Winners:

The blue color was used for the Possum and Gator as a tribute to our beloved "Blue Dog" here in Louisiana.

Some very talented young people...awesome!
