and here's the story featured in "Talk of the Times" on Saturday, February 4, 2012 :

St. Ann pupil's art goes national
"A painting by St. Ann School first-grader Vanessa Torres has been chosen by Massachusetts Art Education Association President Christopher Whitehead for inclusion in the MAEA Youth Art Month Show, which will be on display in the National Art Education Association Convention. That event will run March 1 to 4, at the Hilton Hotel in New York City.  The convention focuses on the idea that educators educate better when they collaboratively explore what it means to be teachers and learners with one focal point: the power of visual arts education to fulfill human potential."
