Youth Art Month at GALLERY 302

Gallery 302 welcomes students and their art work from Lake Region High School, Fryeburg Academy and Bridgton Academy for the 2017 Student Art Show. Thanks to the generosity of the Gallery members who donate their exhibiting spaces, the encouragement of the art teachers, and the willingness of the student artists to share their work with us, we are able to participate in the national celebration of visual arts for grades K-12.

Youth Art Month is an annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art and art education for all children. It recognizes the skills developed in visual arts as experiences that are not possible in other curriculum areas and that are vital twenty-first century skills that contribute to the success of our children in a global society.

Lake Region students will be exhibiting drawings, mosaics, and 3-dimensional work assisted by their teachers Teal Rancourt-Carlson, Christina Metcalf,and Carmel Collins. Students of Gabe Miller from Bridgton Academy will be showing wood carvings, other 3-dimensional works, and prints . And Stephen Pullan’s students from Fryeburg Academy will be exhibiting paintings and drawings.

The student works will be on display at Gallery 302, 112 Main Street, Bridgton from March 3 through March 24. A reception will be held this Saturday, March 4, from 1 to 3 pm. The public is invited to come and celebrate with the students.
