Chester-Upland School District 4th graders teamed up with Linda Braceland’s art gallery and the State Senator to combine art with Pennsylvania history.

Through a partnership with Art of the Avenue of the States, state Sen. Tom Killion’s office established the Pennsylvania Art Program which asked fourth-graders to express what they know about Pennsylvania history in a variety of art pieces that will soon hang in the Capitol.

Chester continues to prove that children introduced to the arts become high achievers.

“Not every child is going to be involved in the arts, but for those who want to be exposed to it, they’ll never know that they have a hidden talent if the can’t try it,” Killion said.
