O. B. GATES ELEMENTARY

Youth Art Month 2016

Youth Art Month is celebrated each year at our school with traditions which are enjoyed and cherished by the Gates Family...students, families, and staff!

  • The 12th Annual Grade 5 HANDPRINT PROJECT - each and every fifth grader adds his or her handprint to the border along the main hallways.
  • Y.A.M. PERSONAL STUDIO SESSIONS - ALL Gates artists spend several art classes working on self-directed paintings. They choose their own subject, style, color scheme, and tools.
  • Recognition of Gates artists showing work in our community - This year, we had two Gates artists whose work was displayed in Y.A.M. exhibits!
  • Y.A.M. Displays of Student Artwork
