Charlotte County Public Schools (CCPS) students from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade currently have their works of art on display at the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts (LCVA) in Farmville. The artwork, which ranges from crafts, to paintings, to photography, is part of a region-wide youth exhibit called Start With Art, Learn for Life: The Annual Area Youth Art Month Exhibition.

Approximately 47 schools, which include preschools, public schools, private schools and homeschool groups from 11 counties will be represented during the event, Mindy Pierson, school programs educator at LCVA, said.

“This will be a fun time to preview the exhibition and to gather and celebrate the awesome art teachers and young artists from the surrounding counties participating in this years’ exhibition,” Pierson said, who noted that kids from CCPS, Prince Edward County Public Schools (PECPS), Fuqua School, Buckingham County Public Schools (BCPS), Cumberland County Public Schools (CUCPS), The Andy Taylor Center for Early Childhood Development, Full Circle Nature School, Central Virginia Christian School and various homeschooled students took part in the exhibit.

Pierson said that Southside Electric Cooperative sponsored the exhibit.

“Everyone is invited, including the community at large, so participants are encouraged to bring their family and friends to support each other and enjoy the fruits of their efforts,” Pierson said
