2024 Youth Art Month

DCSS Celebrates Youth Art Month
Posted on 03/07/2024
March is National Youth Art Month, and Douglas County is celebrating its student artists and art educators. The theme for Youth Art Month in 2024 is “Dream in Art.”

As part of the celebration, opening receptions were held over the past week for student art exhibits at the Douglas County School System Central Office, the Douglas County Courthouse and the Douglasville/Douglas County Cultural Arts Center.

Art teachers at each school chose work for the exhibits with a focus on having a good representation of all techniques and mediums and showcasing work that “highlights their art programs,” said DCSS Art Specialist Tammy Morris.

“Celebrating YAM gives art educators an opportunity to showcase and highlight our art programs by sharing the amazing things students have been working on all year,” Morris said. “Administrators, school board members, district leaders, community members and most importantly parents are invited to attend the celebration. It's essential for stakeholders and voters in our community to realize the incredible benefits art education provides and promotes. Art nurtures students' creativity, fosters critical thinking and promotes cultural awareness and understanding. Art education has many unique qualities. Skills developed in art also help students find success in many other areas in life.”

Student artwork will be on display at all three locations through March 27.
