Student Art Exhibit at District Offices

On Thursday, March 15, several families, parents and students flowed through our district office hallways to view art.  Not just any art, but artwork painted by students right here in Citrus County.

The artworks on display were created by students during the 2017-2018 school year and reflect the grade level students were in at the time the artwork was created. Each schools' art teacher selected quality work to be displayed that represents certain grade levels. We, at the district office, feel privileged to have these works displayed at our work site and enjoy looking at them daily. These pieces will be taken down and replaced with new student art in May. 

The arts programs have long been an integral part of the Citrus County School District curriculum.  Art and Music instruction is provided to all students beginning in pre-kindergarten and available to all students through twelfth grade.  The arts provide a mechanism to synthesize student learning and develop creativity through an applied, hands-on instructional program.

Educational research has shown students who participate in the arts perform higher on academic assessments and are more likely to participate in advanced academic classes. Therefore, we provide art classes to all students as part of the curriculum throughout the instructional program.

Thank you to everyone who came by to appreciate these true works of art.  We look forward to next year!
