Showing what students have learned has been the fo- cus in celebrating student art, she said. "It's not a contest," she ex- plained, "it's just a show." Last year was the first time the program was offered and was the vision of PCAC Busi- ness Administrator Martha Flynn. "It was just an idea of mine. I thought we should promote student art." But due to the overwhelm- ing response in its first year, PCAC has had to impose lim- its on the number of entries. According to Wickman, only five pieces of art can be sub- mitred from each class. Subject matter varies from animals to fruit to self-por- traits, Wickman said about the art that has arrived for" display. The mediums also vary, from watercolor, acrylic paint, pencil, colored pencil and more. The arts are a vital and ex- citing part of our children's education, Wickman said.
