March Is Youth Art Month

To celebrate Youth Art Month the Visual Art Boosters will be hosting the opening for the Annual Maggie Walker Student Art Show on Friday, March 5 from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. Student art will be on display throughout the school and refreshments will be served. Please plan to join us and enjoy the amazing creativity exhibited by students enrolled in all the visual art classes. The exhibition will remain on view throughout the month of March.

A variety of refreshments are needed, including drinks, appetizers and sweet treats. If you’re planning to attend and can bring an item to share, please contact the reception coordinator, Gina Duncan at grduncan@verizon.net. (You can also drop off food for the lock-in at this time).
