It will run through April 26 with the Student Artist Reception on Tuesday, April 15 at 4:30 pm. The reception honors the students, their families and art teachers. The Awards Ceremony will start at 5 pm and the Art Teachers will be presenting the awards. The image to the left shows a portion of the 2013 Student Art Exhibit.
The Art of Success: Secrets I Have Learned will be about 45 minutes in length and is described by Mr. Fionda as “where I informally share experiences, anecdotes and insights gleaned over 30 years as an artist and art educator. The thrust of the presentation deals with helping artists reach the next plateau in their development.” Click here for more information and images.
