AISD Youth Art Month Opening
4 March @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Visual arts curriculum is a fundamental part of educating the whole child. Every piece of artwork is a formative assessment offering the artist an opportunity to reflect on their growth as an artist, exhibit knowledge and skills learned, and communicate their unique and personal message to viewers. Art allows students to give voice to thoughts, ideas, and feelings they may not be able or willing to express with verbal and written skills. From a district perspective, research shows that students enrolled in the arts have higher school attendance and those students who complete more arts courses have up to 15% higher pass rate on standardized tests. Today, one in 15 jobs in Texas are part of the creative sector.
Parents, students, teachers, and art lovers, from all walks of Austin life will gather to view this once a year exhibit. Painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed media, sculpture, collage, weaving, ceramics, photography, jewelry and electronic media will amaze visitors to the show.
