Artistic Renderings of Youth, a juried exhibit of work by 7th through 12th grade artists from Colbert and Lauderdale counties, is on display at Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts through March 27th. Celebrating its 29th year, this exhibit has developed into an outstanding showcase of youth art.
March is nationally recognized as Youth Art Month. This exhibit provides an opportunity for the community to discover the young artistic talent in our area. The competition is coordinated by a group of junior high and high school art teachers to give students a chance to exhibit their art work and receive recognition for their talent. This year close to 300 pieces representing 15 different schools were accepted and exhibited. Ribbons are awarded in three grade divisions: Division 1: 7th and 8th grades, Division2: 9th and 10th grades, and Division 3: 11th and 12th grades.
The exhibit is open daily, Monday – Friday 9am – 4pm.
