Celebrate: Youth Art Month show set Thursday
March is celebrated annually as Youth Art Month across the country and the halls of the Walkers' Gallery at the San Marcos Activity Center are filled with children's creative artworks from all across San Marcos.
Drawings, paintings and mixed media projects by 400 children, from pre-K through high school, adorn the walls and hang from the windows, representing every public school, the Master's School and the ArtSpace.
The public is invited to join in the celebration at a reception Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at the center.
Along with the exhibit of artwork, there will be entertainment by an ensemble of the S.M.A.R.T. Orchestra, a performance by 12- year-old award winning vocalist Anana Rhames and the Hill Country Youth Chorus.
Art exhibits at the Walkers' Gallery are sponsored by the San Marcos Area Arts Council and the city of San Marcos with support from the San Marcos Arts Commission.
The exhibit will be on display through March 29.
