Youth Art Month (YAM)

Common Street Arts presents the new Youth Art Month (YAM) exhibition that celebrates visual art created by k-12 youth in the greater Waterville community. This year’s theme is “building community through art” and is an opportunity to showcase the creative endeavors of the area youth while highlighting the beneficial effects of artistic practice as a part of the educational experience. The month-long celebration will emphasize the value of the visual arts that are often overlooked as a part of a standard core curriculum. There will also be a large scale interactive map of Waterville and surrounding communities for children and families to explore and contribute to (a few written lines or drawings). An opening reception for the artists will be held on March 1st from 4:00-6:00pm.
