Program – Jessica Darby, teacher of gifted students at North Ridgeville Academic Center for math and language arts, brought her 3rd and 4th grade students. They were part of a Young Audiences program in which they were given a book with blank pages, donated by North Ridgeville Arts Council. The students, as part of their class, created a story and added visual artwork to it. Each student brought their books to show us and stood up and explained about their stories and art and how they created them. They all did an excellent job making their books and presenting them to us.
