The Ventura School District Art Showcase was held at the Vita Art Center for the first time May 25 and for several days, people were able to visit and view the works of many of the talented young artists in Ventura Unified, from  kindergarten through highschool.

“The thing that is really important about art is that it’s a [way] we can express ourselves [and] can process our experiences,” art teacher Nicole Rapattoni said. “It’s a place where we get to be creative and figure things out, and not always have a plan, and if sometimes [things] don’t work it’s a happy accident.”
