Multiple Minnehaha Academy Lower School students were featured in the Art Educators of Minnesota Youth Art Month Student Exhibition at the Minnesota State Capitol this year. The four selected for the juried exhibit were first grader Nathan, second grader Railyn, third grader Linnea, and fifth grader Greta. Each student was submitted by Lower School Art Teacher, Sheryl Cullen.
Railyn took 3rd Place in the Elementary School category for her submission “Embossed Fall Leaves,” and was awarded a sketchbook set from Triarco Arts & Crafts.
The Council for Art Education administers Youth Art Month each year during March, coordinating with participating states to celebrate visual arts for grades K-12. The program “emphasizes the value of art education for all children, encourages support for quality school art programs, and promotes art material safety.”
Art teachers are allowed to submit two to four students for jury selection in the exhibit. Minnehaha Academy congratulates each of the students chosen by Ms. Cullen for their artistic achievement.
