National Youth Art Month is a month of celebration, awareness, and advocacy for art in our schools and excellent art education for our youth. Check the to see all that there is to celebrate this month!
Youth Art Month demonstrates how Liberty schools are
shaping artists. For some, all that time spent in the art
classroom has resulted in a piece of art worthy enough for public
display. Dozens of Liberty Central School District student-artists
will get their first taste of public exposure with the opening of
three major exhibits, listed below.
Community members are strongly encouraged to attend one or all of the following events to congratulate the district’s budding student artists and accelerate their passion in the art-making process.
