The Northumberland Public Library in Heathsville’s meeting room was aglow with art created by the region’s homeschooled children.

The youngsters, ranging from four to 17 years old, created 157 paintings that were hung on the room’s walls. They ranged from small to relatively large and from early efforts to more sophisticated work by older students. They were almost all painted in bright hues.
