LONG BRANCH, NJ - Paintings and drawings created by Monmouth County Arts High and Middle School students will be on display at the Long Branch Public Library, located at 328 Broadway in Long Branch during the month of February 2011.
The exhibit features work completed by gifted and talented students who participated in the Monmouth County Arts High and Middle School program. The program, which is now in its 8th year, offers advanced arts classes in creative writing, dance, instrumental music, vocal music, acting and visual arts to public and private school students in Monmouth County. Students, admitted to the program through audition are released from their schools one afternoon each week to participate in the various courses which are taught by professional artists.
This program has been made possible in part by a grant from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/ Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts and the New Jersey Cultural Trust.
