Youth Art Month

Warehouse Galleries, February 23 – March 19

Youth Art Month (YAM) is a nationwide celebration of the visual arts that began in 1961 by the Council for Art Education.  Our YAM Exhibit welcomes student artwork from all five public school districts, private schools, and home school associations in Anderson County. Teachers from these groups submit work to the Arts Center, a juror reviews the work and assigns awards. There are hundreds of different pieces of work available for viewing and we are so excited at the amount of talent the youth of Anderson County have!

The Atrium Gallery features the work of Anderson County Visual Arts Teachers.

Tuesday -Friday, 10:00am – 5:00pm
Saturday, March 6, 10:00am – 2:00pm
