The City of Clearwater will participate in the national observance of March is Youth Art Month by issuing a Proclamation on March 2, 2017 at the City Council meeting. As part of Clearwater’s recognition of the national observance, the “March is Youth Art Month K- 8 Art Exhibition” will be on display at the Clearwater Main Library in the Carnegie and Osceola Galleries and the Youth Services area. The Clearwater Arts Alliance, in cooperation with Pinellas County Schools and the City, sponsors and coordinates the Exhibition, Awards and the Awards Reception to be held on Sunday, March 12 at 2:30 pm in honor of the participating students. Their families, teachers and friends are invited to attend.
The event is to recognize the work of the young artists selected for the exhibition from entries throughout the county. Each student chosen to participate will receive a certificate. The month-long observance is to emphasize the benefit of arts education for all children—developing self-esteem, organizational skills, use of time and resources, appreciation of the work of others, cooperation and critical thinking skills, all of which are vital to the success of our future leaders—our children.
