Mount Vernon art school to move into own space in 2018

More opportunities to shine are on the horizon for students at a Mount Vernon school for the arts.



Students at the Performing and Visual Arts Magnet School will no longer have to share space at Mount Vernon High School. At the start of the 2018 school year, students will move into a new space. 



The students say getting their own building is just what they need since not all kids learn the same way. Whether it's acting or painting, students say they love being able to express themselves.



"When you look at students who are creative and who are talented, there's a fire burning," says Evelyn Collins, program director at Performing and Visual Arts Magnet School. 



Students at the school hope to someday find themselves on Broadway or maybe even performing in Carnegie Hall.
