As you may remember, March is Youth Art Month. It is a time to celebrate the arts, whether visual, musical or theatrical. Each year, students at Southwestern Middle School have the opportunity to do this through visual art. This year for our annual Youth Art Month Celebration, we will be celebrating with an Artist of the Day. Every day during the month of March, a new artist will be announced, and students will learn a bit about when they lived and what they're famous for. They will be encouraged to see how they can extend that learning on their own by independent research of the featured artists. The hope is that students and staff will learn about a whole range of artists they've maybe never even heard of before.
