Several Mason City Schools students' masterpieces were recently designated a part of the Mason Central art collection that will be displayed throughout the 2016-2017 school year.
Superintendent Dr. Gail Kist-Kline invited each artist and his or her family to a special reception in the students’ honor on May 10.
"I love asking each of our artists about the inspiration for their piece -- which is already bringing such joy to those of us who get to pass these exceptional students' work each day," explained Kist-Kline.
Kist-Kline also thanked the district's art instructors for expanding the students' talents and creativity. "We have very talented students who are supported and encouraged by their very talented and dedicated teachers!"
