Chalk it up

          For years, art and music programs have been on the decline throughout the U.S.  As school budgets shrink, cultural offerings for students are often the first to go, so that staples such as math, science and English can continue (we need more students proficient in the three R’s).  So it was heartening to see 100+ Ventura High School art students creating chalk art paintings last week on the lawn in front of the auditorium.  Paintings so good, most were sold for $30-$60 each, benefiting the school’s art department.  A few images to give the flavor are posted here…
