March is Youth Art Month
State Wide Youth Art Month Exhibit, Capital, Helena, 2018
The slide show above showcases the work on display at the State Capital for Youth Art Month, 2018. Below is an excerpt form a letter written to one of the participants in the exhibition.
"Art education is essential tool for our students to develop creatively and problem-solving skills. Your work reminded me each day how art can transform our schools and introduce students to diverse cultures, values, and modes of expression. I will continue to advocate for art education in Montana so students like you can continue to enrich our state."
Governor Steve Bullock, 2018
