“It was difficult to select those pieces to be exhibited. I continue to be impressed by the serious approach, effort, and quality of work that these young men produce,” said Cheryl Moore, Art Department Chair at South Kent School. “For many, this is their first formal art class and it is very rewarding to help them discover and develop talents that they may not have known they possessed. I am proud of the work they have produced, and the way they have represented our program and our school,” she added.
