For a few, it was a lesson on how to hold a paintbrush. For all, it was “a fun time.”“All of the students seemed to have a good time and they were very engaged,” Pritchett said. “The more we expose students to the different kinds of art and the more opportunities they have to participate in the arts, the more likely they are to generate an interest in the arts. Hopefully, that interest will lead them to the Johnson Center for the Arts where we have outstanding art exhibitions throughout the year.”Pritchett expressed appreciation to the Alabama State Council on the Arts and to all of the members of the Johnson Center and its sponsors for making it possible to offer ArtBridges and other art programs for people of all ages.
