Warren County YAM

Art teachers in Warren County celebrate the achievements and talents of our students in our annual Youth Art Month Art Exhibit hosted by Warren County Arts, a collective of local artists who support the arts in the county. For our students’ art to be shared, we need an audience, and the environment at the Oxford Municipal Gallery, home for Warren County Arts, is intimate and welcoming and makes enjoying the exhibit easy and worth experiencing more than once.
Picking just a few pieces of art to exhibit is a complex and often poignant experience. We chose works which would evoke a response from the viewer, convey the students’ ideas and their love of making art, and which best illustrate our students’ growth as artists and communicators.
Nine Warren County elementary and middle schools participated in the show. Over two hundred works in many media by our exceptional and enthusiastic student artists were displayed for art lovers in our area in this month long exhibit. We love our new home.
