Kids Tag Art recognized the artistic talent of 43 Indian River County student artists on Tuesday, November 13th. The happy event was held at the McAfee Hall at First Presbyterian Church and featured just over an hour of recognition, presentation of award medals and certificates, and the kids’ favorite part – cake!
These creative 5th graders were selected by the Kids Tag Art judges: local artist Sean Sexton, photographer Michael Jackson, and the Director of Education at Vero Beach Museum of Art, Sara Klein. Awards were presented by Carole Jean Jordan, Tax Collector, Indian River County and Dr. Mark J. Rendell, Indian River County Superintendent of Schools, as well as major sponsors, the Live Like Cole Foundation and Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute Foundation.
“We are excited to use this program to showcase the imaginative flair of Indian River County students,” Carole Jean Jordan, Tax Collector, stated. She continued, “Kids Tag Art is especially appreciative of our sponsors for providing the supplies and awards to create this opportunity for all 5th graders in our communities.”
