March 25, 2009 THE VILLADOM TIMES II • Page 11 Ridgewood Village schools celebrate Youth Art Month March is Youth Art Month in Ridgewood, and students from the public schools recently took part in the celebration, which began with a reception for student artists and their families. Local business people are invited to come to the Education Center and select a student work of art to keep on loan, professionally framed, for one year as a way of sponsoring student art in the schools. Brochures will be distributed containing maps of all the sponsored student art to encourage walking tours of the Ridgewood shopping and business district. The paintings first shown at the reception will be on display for the rest of the month. Members of the Ridgewood High School String Ensemble, including Minjae Kim, Caroline Parness, Christine Shigeta, and Phoebe Salzman-Cohen offered selections for string quartet at the celebration, including “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Pictured left: Elementary students looking at their classmates’ artwork. Desiring” by Johann Sebastian Bach. Kim will also play a solo in the “Second Violin Concerto” by Henrik Wienawski in May at Ridgewood High School. Members of the Benjamin Franklin Middle School National Junior Art Society provided visitors to the reception with an opportunity to get involved in an art project, and the younger students enjoyed looking at the selected work of their classmates. ��� ���� ������� Out of the way, but worth it.
