To celebrate Youth Art Month 2016 in Austin, over 1,500 works of art representing 113 elementary, middle, and high schools will be displayed for public viewing at the new Austin Independent School District Performing Arts Center.
Parents, students, teachers, and art lovers, from all walks of Austin life will gather to view this once a year exhibit. Painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed media, sculpture, collage, weaving, ceramics, photography, jewelry and electronic media will amaze visitors to the show.
Youth Art Month will be represented as well with ten billboards designed by Juan Salcedo, 11th grade art student at Travis High School. The billboard theme for this year is “Art has a story to tell”.
2016 Art T-shirts adorned with a student design created by Govalle Elementary fifth grade student, Phoenix Tovar, have been sold in schools. They display the theme, "The Rhythm of Our City".
The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills art strands that include perception, response/evaluation, creative expression, and history and culture will insure an exhibit that shines in quality and variety. By studying art styles from pre-historic to modern times, the children have incorporated art history into their own cultural and personal style. Students have learned to express themselves and their traditions and invent beauty through their art creations.
At the reception on January 31, 2016, refreshments will be provided. Free parking is available for the reception in the Performing Arts Center parking garage.
