The Student Artists of the Month (SAM) program recognizes students for their exceptional artwork. Each month students are selected by their art teachers and are awarded a Certificate of Achievement, a Fine Arts Medallion, and have their artwork displayed at the Jefferson Township Public Library. The program is co-sponsored by the Jefferson Arts Committee (JAC) and the art teachers of Jefferson Township Public Schools.

January’s student artists include:

“For me art is about connection. Not only connecting with our inner-selves, but the world around us. The SAM program is a great way to use art as a positive community builder. Each month I am inspired by the amazing artistic talent of our students and the inspiration and dedication of our art teachers.” – Jason Nicholas
