March is Youth Art Month and St. Francis Borgia School had five young artists competing in the Wisconsin Regional Art Show.
Third grader Gianna La Rosa is a Wisconsin State Qualifier with her Pastel Vase rendition of the famous van Gogh’s Vase of Flowers. Seventh grader Katherine Roberts is a Wisconsin State Qualifier with her Wire World sculpture self-portrait. Fifth grader Emelia Wagner is also a State Qualifier with her three-dimensional drawing Walk to Wonderland. The other SFB competing artists were Ayla Dreisbach and Danny Springer.
Youth Art Month is organized by The Wisconsin Art Education Association. Their mission is to develop a professional community with a passion for inspiring creativity, innovation, advocacy and excellence in art education. Art education is an academic endeavor and contributes educational benefits to all elementary and secondary students. Art education is important because it develops students’ creative problem-solving and critical thinking abilities.
Selected pieces will be featured again in the virtual state show that is scheduled to be released on March 15th, 2021. More information can be found at http://www.wiarted.org
