Online Gallery Submissions

Visual art about proper use of face masks 

Over March Break, a group of preteens took part in the Peer Mentorship Program to create a project to help the community. They decided to start an online gallery of visual art to raise awareness on the proper use and disposal of face masks. Local young people are invited to submit electronic images to be included in the gallery.
