Sweetwater ISD Students Participate in Youth Art Month Activities and Displays

Sweetwater Independent School District (SISD) Secondary students recently participated in Youth Art Month.  The Alexandria, Virginia based Council for Art Education sponsors Youth Art Month in March of each year to encourage support for quality school art programs. The Council administers the program at the national level providing a medium to recognize skills developed through visual arts experiences.

High level and rigorous art programs, like the SISD Secondary Art Program, include targeted cross-curricular connections in problem solving, creativity, observation, and communication... all 21st Century Skills. Sweetwater High School students, as well as students from Sweetwater Middle School, currently have artwork on display at the County-City Library and the Grace Museum in Abilene.

"I want to invite and encourage everyone to see our student's work," said SHS Art Teacher Scharles Kelley.  "Community member support for student artists means more than you know and anyone who visits one of these showings will not be disappointed!" SHS participates in art shows, special exhibits, fundraisers, and school/community activities throughout the year, but tries to celebrate visual arts education during the month of March.

The SHS Fine Arts Program starts with students learning about fine arts in elementary school and builds each year helping to make Sweetwater High School the premier high school in the Big Country!
