BR Celebrates Youth Art Month!

Written by Bit Roads on . Posted in Uncategorized

In 1961, The Art & Creative Materials Institute, Inc. created Youth Art Month with the goal of recognizing art education as a viable factor in education curriculum, as stated on arteducators.org. Since then, the month of March has been designated as an annual observation to emphasize the value of art and art education.

To honor Youth Art Month, Bituminous Roadways, Inc. would like to say thank you to all our employee’s children who contributed to the BR 2017 calendar. Each year, our company asks children (or grandchildren) of our employees to color a picture of what they believe Bituminous Roadways does. Over the years, we have received drawings from children as young as three or teenagers about to graduate.

We appreciate their time and effort to provide us with the calendar drawings. This publication is mailed to all Bituminous Roadways customers and employees, a list with nearly 2,500 names! You can request a calendar by emailing heidis@bitroads.com.

The drawings typically incorporate BR core competencies, such as asphalt paving, patching, excavating, and grading, showing pictures of dump trucks, pavers, rollers, and backhoes. In addition, the kids include parking lots, pathways, roadways, running tracks and safety signage into their drawings.

Thank you to all the BR kids who contributed artwork this year!
