Highland Lakes Elementary Art students were honored during the Burnet County Student Art Exhibit at the Burnet County Courthouse.  Featured artists from around the County participated in a call for art with the theme of “Nature”.

“The opportunity for our students to showcase their art was wonderful,” said HLE Art Teacher, Jan Woods.  “The students even received a Youth Art Month Proclamation from Burnet County Judge, James Oakley!”

According to the Burnet County Commissioners court proclamation, the Burnet County Art Exhibition is held each year to give local artists, including student artists, a meaningful opportunity to develop initiative, problem-solving and critical thinking abilities, self-expression, creativity, self-evaluation, and discipline.  The event also recognizes that art education teaches sensitivity to beauty, order and other expressive qualities.
