OC Youth Art Month Reception 2016

As many of you know, I am not only an illustrator but an art teacher and one of the events I look forward to the most is the CAEA Youth Art Month student show where we get to celebrate our student artists! Our school, Fairmont Preparatory Academy was well represented at the Orange County Youth Art Month Student Art Reception on Thursday, February 25th, 2016 taking home 3 awards. Youth Art Month is an  annual national celebration of the arts to emphasize the value of art education for all children. Please join us in the month of March to celebrate the #PowerofArt and be creative!! Here is how our show turned out:
