Spotlight on the Arts

This February marked the conclusion of this year's Very Special Arts (VSA) Art Experience for students from two middle schools within our district. Students from Seven Springs Middle and Hudson Middle received visual arts instruction within their core curriculum for 9 weeks ending in a culminating experience with each student's very own artwork displayed in the Progress Energy Art Gallery in downtown New Port Richey. We are very thankful for this opportunity to highlight our student's artwork and have them experience what the joys of the arts can bring to their education.

What a wonderful Partnership fostered through the Very Special Arts, the District School Board of Pasco County, and Progress Energy Art Gallery.
