The Mountain Regional Arts and Crafts Guild, Inc. is celebrating National Youth Art Month at their Artworks Gallery with an art competition and
exhibition for children in the local communities. The entries may be viewed during the month of March at ArtWorks, located at 232B Chatuge
Way in Hiawassee. Hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 AM until 5 PM. Local children in kindergarten through eighth grade were
invited to participate in this  two dimensional competition and exhibition. The show will close on Saturday, March 30 with a Reception and Awards ceremony  at 2 PM. 
The public is invited to visit ArtWorks  to view the exhibition and to attend the Reception to meet the young artists.

Youth Art Month is a national celebration for young people in America to explore their interest in art. It was founded by the Crayon, Watercolor
and Craft Institute, Inc., in cooperation with the National Art Education Association in 1961. In 1984, the Art & Creative Materials Institute,
Inc.(ACMI) created the Council for Art Education,Inc.(CFAE) to oversee the annual observation of  what is presently known as Youth Art
Month. As of 2009, the  CFAE consists of representatives of the ACMI; the National Art Education Association; the "SHIP"( a group of
manufacturers of art materials)  and the General Federation of Women's Clubs. The Craft and Hobby Association is also involved with Youth Art Month.

Due to space limitations Artworks was unable to include all youth in this year's exhibition, but we hope to be able to grow this celebration in the future to include older youth as well as multidimensional art. ArtWorks, owned and operated by the Mountain Regional Arts and Crafts Guild, Inc., a non-profit organization is dedicated to serve the needs of the local communities in the arts. Classes are presently being offered for both children and adults. To learn more, please visit ArtWorks in Hiawassee or call 706-896-0932.
