Student artwork featured in virtual NYSATA art exhibit

Each year, the North Colonie Art Department participates in the NYS Art Teachers Association Legislative Art Exhibit. The New York State Art Teachers Association (NYSATA), in partnership with NYSUT and in collaboration with our New York State Legislators, organizes this exhibit to showcase the amazing artwork of students across New York state. The legislative exhibit is the flagship event for Youth Art Month every March celebrating the visual arts, encouraging support for quality art programs and promoting art material safety.

Review the student artwork in this year’s virtual exhibit.

“Given the many challenges this school year, we could not be more excited and proud to have such a strong representation in this statewide exhibit,” said Anne Manzella, District Supervisor of Visual & Media Arts.
