MASON CITY – Young at Art is the theme of the 30th annual Youth Art Month Exhibition in the Center Space Gallery of the Charles H. MacNider Art Museum in Mason City. This year the spotlight shines on elementary school students, celebrating the creativity and artistic energy of students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Student artists whose work has been selected for inclusion in the exhibition will be honored at a reception and recognition ceremony at the Museum on Saturday, March 22 at 1:00 p.m. The reception will be hosted by Alpha Delta Kappa, an honorary sorority for women in education.

The purpose of Youth Art Month is to emphasize the value of art education for all students and to encourage support for quality school art programs. Demonstrated outcomes of art education have been shown to be development of critical thinking skills, self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self-expression and cooperative working skills. Art teachers from AEA Area 267, Clear Lake Regional Office schools were invited to enter artwork from their students. Sixty-four works from thirteen schools were selected for this year’s show. Young at Art is sponsored locally by Target. The exhibition continues through Saturday, April 26.
