Newburgh School District Young Artists “Put On the Ritz”
A collection of various art media works by some of Newburgh’s youngest (Grade 3 to Grade 8) students took visitors at the Ritz Theatre Gallery by surprise this week. Their works had a complexity, detail, and passion that jumped out of the pieces and brought in a growing crowd.
Hidden treasures could be found in some of the works, like a group of clouds that if you looked closely had smiling faces embedded as they floated above a country scene.
The annual All District Art Show included 10 area district schools and was a huge success.
There will be additional shows in the coming months including Art in April at the Mall, a Recycled Art Contest sponsored by Safe Harbors of the Hudson on April 21st, a Middle Level Art Show on May 8th in the NFL Lobby, and a Permanent Art Collection in June in the BOE Auditorium.
