Before it’s over make sure to make it to the Main Street exhibit. On display is a great collection of some of the most creative, expressive and carefully executed art projects from grades K-12.

The exhibit opening was on this past Tuesday and was well attended by artists, their families and members of the NRPS Art Department.

It was a great pleasure talking to students and their families and sharing in the celebration of art projects well done. It is always a fulfilling experience watching students talk to their families about their work. Often times it can be taken for granted the process and skills developed that are essential toward creating.

Talking about the work can also demystify the process of creating art. Surely, there is a lot of raw talent on display but more often are glowing examples of persistence, following time-tested processes and refined creative visions.
