March is Youth Art Month

The City of Clearwater participated in the national observance of March is Youth Art Month by issuing a Proclamation on March 3, 2016 at the City Council meeting. As part of Clearwater’s recognition of the national observance, a celebration was held on Sunday, March 13, 2016 at the “March is Youth Art Month K- 8 Art Exhibition” Award Reception at the Clearwater Main Library.

Sue Castleman, Visual Art Supervisor PreK-12, Pinellas County Schools, Christopher Hubbard, City of Clearwater Cultural Affairs, CAA Arts Education Co-chairs Maria Cantonis and Kay Campbell welcomed the young artists, their teachers, families and members of the community. The event is to recognize the work of the young artists selected for the exhibition from entries throughout the county.  Each student chosen to participate received a certificate. Awards of Merit and Excellence were presented to 18 young artists.

The month-long observance is to emphasize the benefit of arts education for all children—developing self-esteem, organizational skills, use of time and resources, appreciation of the work of others, cooperation and critical thinking skills, all of which are vital to the success of our future leaders—our children.
