NCCA-Artsplace Celebrates “Youth Arts Month”
NCCA-Artsplace is celebrating “Youth Arts Month” during March. Artwork by youth in Newaygo County, grades K – 6, is on display through March 23 in three Newaygo County locations as part of an annual countywide art contest. The award winning artwork on exhibit features some up and coming young artists and their creative talents.
First, second, third place artworks pieces are on display at NCCA - Artsplace. In addition, this year’s art contest judge Cara O’Brien chose artwork receiving honorable mention and special recognition awards that are on display at Hesperia Community Library and the Dogwood Center for Performing Arts’ lobby gallery.
The theme for this year’s NCCA-Artsplace Youth Arts Competition was “Art Around the World.” This theme allowed for...
...maximum creativity on both the part of the teacher and the students. The quality and variety of art work this year was excellent, varying from painting and drawing to sculpture and mosaics.
Youth receiving awards for their artwork will be honored on Friday, March 24 at an awards ceremony to be held at the Dogwood Center at 6:30 p.m. Following the awards presentation, the honored students, their families and art instructors will be treated to a performance by magician “Amazing Clark”. This talented magician will provide a great evening for the honored students and their guests.
Everyone is encouraged to drop by NCCA–Artsplace, Dogwood Center for the Performing Arts, and the Hesperia Community Library to check out the work of these talented young artists! All artwork will be on display through March 23.
