Young artists showcase their talents at the K-12 Art and Text Show

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) - Laramie County School District 1 Kindergarten-12th grade students are hosting an Art and Text Show at the Cheyenne Civic Center until 7 p.m. tonight, April 13. Students from schools across Cheyenne participated in the show, filling two floors at the venue with artwork ranging from abstract paintings, to intricate sculptures, and more. ​One young student was asked to explain why they thought art was important, and their written response was, "because people love to pant. art is very pretty. I can pant lots of things. You can pant anything you want. That is why I think art is important." *Art from sixth graders at Jessup Elementary:* *Art from fourth graders from Jessup Elementary:* *Art from students at Johnson Junior High:* *Art from eighth graders at Johnson Junior High: * ​ “Please take the time to look at the students’ artwork, read about their ideas and enjoy their artistic accomplishments,” LCSD1 art coordinator, Michele Ragaglia, said.
