March is Youth Art Month!

Every year, in the darkest part of the long cold and seemingly endless Winter something very bright and fun happens at the Trumansburg School District!  This year is no exception!  TCSDF is proud to once again sponsor this year’s Youth Art Month with special workshops for students culminating in an art show and auction on March 26th!  We encourage you and your students to get involved!  Watch the TCSDF Facebook Page for more information!

This year’s theme is PUPPETS!

Each of the schools have programs being made available to students outside of the normal class room time.  Below is a time line of all of the events.  For more information e-mail contact the appropriate art teacherSara Apker (Pre K – 4) Ellen Pennock (5 – 8) or Amanda Colunio (9 – 12).
