Month-Long Exhibit Featuring Halifax County Public Schools Students to begin March 3rd for Youth Art Month 

Parsons-Bruce Art Association is pleased to present a special month-long art exhibit featuring delightful artwork created by Halifax County Public Schools art students in recognition of Youth Art Month.  The public is invited to an opening reception Sunday, March 3 from 3:00 pm until 5:00 pm in the Robert Cage Gallery at the Prizery in Downtown South Boston.

Youth Art Month coordinator, Barbara Cole, art teacher at Halifax County Middle School, states that art education is an important part in the education and development of children.  “Art education is important in helping a child grow intellectually as art integrates information and skills covered in core classes and aids in building problem solving skills as well as critical thinking.   It also allows for the development of motor skills, inventiveness and gives a student an avenue to express oneself.”
