Each student in Ms. Tang's art classes got a puzzle piece and had to choose a positive message/quote and paired it with a visual using acrylic paint. This piece will be presented at the I AM Student Art Exhibition at the Bridgeport Art Center. The opening night is March 21st from 6:00 pm - 10 pm, and runs through April 7th.

Here's our artists' statement: "What inspires you to stay positive? Students of Simpson Academy, a unique school for parenting teens, created a visual representation of what keeps them positive to counter the stigma of what it means to be a teen mom in today’s society. Each individual brought a unique perspective and talent and with the right combination of people, beautiful artwork was created. Our goal was to create a positive piece that represents, inspires and speaks to our community of young mothers."
