JUDGE’S STATEMENT: What a delightful assignment. Having to view this fabulous display of artwork was my good fortune! Quite honestly, I’ve been an artist for my whole life (70 years). And my take away from this assignment? A delightful experience! Wonderful creations, and excellent expression. Hope you artists had as much fun creating these pieces of art! I wasn’t there when you prepared these wonderful pieces, but must tell you each – bravo! excellent work! Everyone of you made great work and should be proud of your effort. My job is very hard, but great fun at the same time. Thank you for doing such a fabulous effort and making my day viewing it all. Always keep pencil and pen and paper on hand to express your obvious artistic talent.

The benefits of ART for youth include problem-solving, creativity, literacy, fine and gross motor skills, connection and understanding. Educators tell us that art encourages fine motor skills, neural development and problem-solving ability which filters to reading, writing, math and science. Therapists tell us that art allows children to process their world and deal with emotions in a safe way through sensory input. Kids say it’s fun.
