The Waupaca Area Public Library is once again celebrating local student art at the annual Youth Art Month exhibit. The exhibit, open in the library’s lower-level exhibit room, showcases the artwork of Waupaca’s elementary, middle and high school students and runs from February 23 through April 4.
Art teachers at each school choose artwork to be displayed in the annual exhibition. Artwork ranges from pencil drawings and canvas paintings to ceramic and fabric bowls. Local judges then present awards for the top artwork at the show. The six-week exhibition will open on Monday, February 23rd with a reception that evening at 6:00 p.m. for all students and their families with displayed artwork.
Youth Art Month (YAM) is observed each March across the country to emphasize the value of art and art education for all children and encourage public support for quality school art programs across the country. The Waupaca Area Public Library’s Youth Art Month exhibit will be on display during normal library hours and is free to the public.
