In conjunction with Youth Art Month, Winters businesses will showcase artworks by Winters High School students during March, with a celebratory evening Art Stroll on Saturday, March 19.
The Art Stroll begins at 4 p.m. with a reception for young artists and their families at the Winters Visitors Center, 11 Main St. The reception is open to the public at 4:30 p.m.
On March 19, students, friends, family and visitors will be able to wander through town and admire the art on display in the windows of Winters businesses. The display will feature works in a variety of media, including watercolor, pen and ink, graphite and printmaking. So far, nine businesses have confirmed they will participate and the list continues to grow.
Youth Art Month has been celebrated around the country every March since 1961 to raise awareness the importance of art in schools. This downtown display comes at a time when the Winters school board again must make cuts to balance the district’s budget, and is meant to celebrate and remind viewers of the value of the arts in the community.
This event is co-sponsored by the Winters Chamber of Commerce. For more information, call the Chamber at (530) 795-2329.
