Over the course of this school year, 16 Jackson public elementary and middle-school students have worked with local teaching artists to incorporate art into their school day. Their artwork is "thoughtful, creative and beautiful," states a release from Parents for Public Schools Jackson, the organization behind the Ask for More Arts program in the city.
