Artwork of eight Bronx students on exhibit at Tweed Courthouse in Manhattan
Eight Bronx residents are among 60 schoolchildren whose artwork has been chosen for a show of the city's most talented young artists. Nine-year-old Tina Hoag's painting hangs in the rotunda of the Tweed Courthouse in a show called PS Arts. Tina?s teacher, Robin Miller, said making art gives students confidence and helps them in other areas as well. Miller says her approach to teaching art is part of a city program called Blueprint for the Arts, which is aimed at integrating art with other parts of the school curriculum. The paintings are on exhibit until September 2.
