Staff Report

March is Youth Art Month and in its honor, the Los Alamos Public Schools (LAPS) art team has hung a beautiful exhibit of student art from all five elementary schools, Los Alamos Middle School and Los Alamos High School in the Gallery at Mesa Public Library. The show continues through March 27.

Thursday evening, art teachers held an opening for all the displaying artists. Hundreds of families and community members gathered to look at the art, speak with the artists and art teachers, and have snacks.
