ArtSmarts students Anthony Cumby, left, Ashley Smith, center, and Dashon Davis, right, perform the song "When the Saints Go Marching In" on recorders during a musical revue and art exhibit at Herman Park Center Tuesday night. ArtSmarts is an after-school program sponsored by the city that provides lessons in music and art. The city developed the program a year ago to help encourage more right brain, or creative, thinking in the city's children, since the arts are one of the first subjects cut in public schools in hard economic times.
