The month of March is designated as Youth Art Month (YAM) and two art students will be featured at the Texas Capitol during the celebration. The Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) sponsors a Capitol Art Contest and Exhibit for students throughout the state of Texas.

This year, two art students from North East ISD have been selected to have their artwork displayed in the exhibit. Cheynne Rodriguez, eighth grader at Krueger Middle School will have her work titled, “Feather of Beauty,” at the exhibit. Jaycob Davila, eleventh grader at Roosevelt High School will have his work titled, “Strange Train,” in Austin as well. Cheynne’s art teacher is Diana Morales and Jaycob’s art teacher is Kendra Slaughter.

The awards ceremony and reception will be open to the public, taking place on March 9 in the Bob Bullock State History Museum in Austin, 3rd floor Austin Room. The art exhibit can be viewed March 1-7 in the North Gallery, State Capitol Building and March 9-24 in the Austin Room at the Bob Bullock Museum.

Congratulations to the students and teachers for helping spotlight the outstanding visual art programs in North East.
