Youth Art Month is a national celebration of the visual arts. Youth Art Month links more than 800,000 K-12 students and over 2,000 art educators across America. Student exhibitions, public artworks, art festivals and school events raise awareness and support of the visual arts.
The Curtis Center for the Arts in Greenwood Village presents artwork from students throughout Arapahoe County in this exhibition. Art teachers across the county were asked to pick work form their students to present in the show. Over 1,000 works of art in all mediums are featured in this exhibit.
The show runs from March 2- March 30. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. This exhibit is free and open to the public.
About the Curtis Center for the Arts
Originally built as a one-room schoolhouse in 1914 to serve 10 local students, the historic, brick building is now home to the Curtis Center for the Arts. The Curtis School was formally opened in 1914 with no electricity or running water. The one acre of land the school sat on was originally donated by area resident Mary J. Curtis in 1901. In 1991 the building was dedicated as the Curtis Arts & Humanities Center.
Today, the Curtis Center continues to be a learning center for the arts. The Center offers art instruction, rotating visual arts exhibits, lectures and the occasional performance. The Curtis Center for the Arts is owned and operated by the City of Greenwood Village.
