JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Elementary school students in Jackson Public Schools showed off their art work skills in downtown Saturday evening. 

"An Evening of Hope" is a part of the fourth annual Exhibit of Jackson Public Schools Student Art Work. 

Students combined their artwork to make a large classroom piece of art.

The large displays are a reflection of how the youngsters see their community, by using a subject discussed in the classroom.

Organizers say the arts are a good link to improve academic achievement and help students become productive citizens.

Artists work with students in 17 different elementary and middle schools in J.P.S.
