The CAC celebrates Youth Art Month
The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/ Douglas County (CAC) is excited to present a new year of young talent on its gallery walls. Artwork from ages K-12 will be presented to the public at the opening reception Thursday, March 3, 5-7 pm, hosted by The Never Alone Clubhouse. Individuals, groups, families, and children can come view the artwork of aspiring future enthusiasts through the dates of March 3-25.
Youth Art Month is a nationally celebrated program administered by The Council for Art Education (CFAE). Started in 1961 through The Art & Creative Materials Institute, this program continues to provide a way for youth to be represented in art shows, school exhibits, and community activities to encourage creation, observation, and visual communication. Youth Art Month activities connect more than 800,000 K-12 students and over 200 art educators all across America. The CAC is proud to participate in this national effort and to recognize our local young artists with this exhibit. Our young artists today are our designers and visionaries of tomorrow. The arts are all around us, from our fashion to our furniture, advertisements and animations, and even the graphic designs we shop daily. Come view the collection of artwork from our local schools to see what the next generation is up to right here in Douglasville.
