[ARCHIVED] Montgomery Celebrates Youth Art Month with Student Art Display

The main lobby at Village Hall in Montgomery has been turned into a mini Art Museum for the month of March to celebrate Youth Art Month.  Students from the area’s elementary schools were invited to participate by providing a piece of their artwork to display.  Along with many drawings, paintings and mixed media, there are also an assortment of sculptures and even a diorama on display.

Everyone is invited to visit Village Hall at 200 N. River Street to marvel at the wide variety of artwork.  Village Hall is open from 8am-4:30pm Monday – Friday.  In addition, the building will be open from 7-8:30 pm on March 9th and March 23rd for people to view the displays.  Student artists will each receive a Youth Art Month button commemorating their participation.

The Montgomery Village Board took time to highlight Youth Art Month at the February 24th board meeting by approving a proclamation that states, in part, “The National Art Education Association, in conjunction with the Illinois Art Education Association, strives to support the youth of our community in their intellectual development through artistic endeavors, and to recognize and support our committed art teachers.”  To learn more about Youth Art Month visit National Art Education Association at www.arteducators.org.
