They are unique, colorful and beautiful pieces of art created by Majestic Elementary Arts Academy students as young as kindergarten. The pieces are so impressive they were selected to be part of a children’s art exhibit which will be on display for an entire year at BYU’s David O. McKay School of Education.
The Children’s Art Gallery is part of the BYU-ARTS Partnership which strives to promote teachers as well as increase instruction for them according to program coordinator, Doug Allen. The art display also gives young artists recognition, validation and encourages them to continue pursuing their love of the arts.
Thanks to BYU and all of the teachers at Majestic Elementary Arts Academy for making this opportunity happen for our amazing students.
