March is Youth Art Month is celebration of the importance of art in education. St. Andrew students are exhibiting their art in several places during March.
A special middle school show entitled “What God Looks Like” is on display in the St. Andrew cafeteria. Each piece is accompanied by the artist’s statement explaining the work. Students were allowed a choice of medium and style to explore and express their individual vision of God. These pieces are very touching.
Throughout the community, there will be several Art shows with St. Andrew students’ work:

“The visual arts are an important part of our lives. It is the universal language we can all understand. Colors tell as when to stop and when to go. Icons are everywhere. The visual arts influence what we buy, wear, drive and even eat. In the arts we use the understanding of science, math, communications, history, and culture. The visual arts allow us to think and dream with our minds, and to express our emotional and spiritual selves with our hearts. Enjoy Art Month. See the endless possibilities your children have created.” (Miss Nikki Marsicano, Art Teacher, St. Andrew Parish School)
