Radnor Township School District Students to Showcase Artwork in Celebration of Youth Art Month
Art teachers at Radnor Township School District welcome all community members and district families to browse original artwork by kindergarten through 12th-grade students in celebration of Youth Art Month.
Student work will be exhibited through March 28 at Radnor High School (130 King of Prussia Rd., Radnor). Parents are invited to visit the exhibit weekdays from 3-9 p.m. A special evening reception for the artists, their families and community members will be held Thursday, March 28 from 6:30-8 p.m. in the Radnor High School lobby.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education designates March as Youth Art Month to emphasize the value of art education for all students and to encourage public support for quality school art programs.
Art education in RTSD is designed to nurture and develop the natural joy of creating visual art; technical skill in art production; an appreciation for arts and artists, past and present, from various cultures; creative and critical thinking and problem solving skills; and visual literacy.
The RTSD art teachers are Alicia Agatone, Erik Barrett, Gayle Barwick-Collins, Tracey Dean, Susan Eyerly, Allyson Gallagher and Tom McLaughlin.
