In early 2014, Wells Elementary School fourth grade art student Auguste Ciorra had a self-portrait that he created exhibited in the Portland Museum of Art as part of the Maine Art Education Association’s celebration of National Youth Art Month. For the month of March, Ciorra’s artwork was displayed along with representative art from many other students from across the State of Maine.

Ciorra’s work was selected from a pool of 105 art students at Wells Elementary School to represent the school at the PMA by Art teacher Sandy Brennan.

"His self-portrait was well done and the background was creatively designed,” commented Brennan. “During class, he demonstrates enthusiasm and strong focus on the quality of his work." Auguste Ciorra is now a fifth grade student at Wells Junior High School.
