Chelmsford Student Artists Display Work in Boston For Youth Art Month

This winter, art students in grades K-12 from across Massachusetts have been selected to display their creative works at the State Transportation Building in Boston in a multimedia exhibit sponsored by the Massachusetts Art Education Association (MAEA) in conjunction with Youth Art Month. This national celebration emphasizes the value of art education for all children and encourages support for quality art programs in Massachusetts schools.This year the theme is “Take a Journey through Art.”


Right now, students from several Chelmsford Public Schools are representing the town in this year’s Youth Art Month exhibit at the State Transportation Building.


In addition, as part of the MAEA event, MAEA is hosting the “Massachusetts Amazing Emerging Artists Recognitions,” a special juried exhibit in which student work is carefully selected for inclusion. This year, one of our grade 10 students, Sara Silva, has been selected for the Massachusetts Amazing Emerging Artists Recognitions Exhibit for her photography piece, Silenced. Congratulations to Sara and her teacher Madalena Alves on this amazing achievement!
