           The Region V Art Festival starts today in Petersburg. At this festival, students from all over Southeast Alaska will be showcasing their art from home, participating in class sessions, and creating even more art.
           Art Fest occurs over the course of four days, each of these days starting at 8 AM with class session A, then going into lunch, coming back for class session B, then going to dinner, and ending the day with a second class session A. The second day is the same schedule with sessions A and B flipped. The final day consists of an ending art show followed with awards for each media category. Students attending will get a total of 30 hours of art during this festival, which would take weeks to get taking the standard school classes at home.
          “It would take weeks for the students to get the same amount of time with their art,” said advisor Louise Kern. “The festival has been going on for a long time. It’s really important and beneficial for the kids.”
