About the event
Washougal School District and Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance have joined forces again to shine a spotlight on student art during Washougal Youth Arts Month (WYAM). March is recognized nationally as Youth Art Month.
The cornerstone event for WYAM is the Washougal Youth Arts Month Gallery, showcasing student works created in art and Career and Technical Education classes from all Washougal schools. This year it will be held in a new location at the Washougal High School Excelsior Building at 1401 39th Street on March 23-25 from 5-7pm and March 26 from 2-5pm. It’s free!
“Our young artists have been working hard all year to create art to share with our community,” said Cape Horn-Skye Elementary and Canyon Creek Middle School art teacher and WYAM gallery organizer, Alice Yang. Art pieces to be displayed include multimedia, watercolor, clay, video, and include works by WHS Career and Technical Education students with photography, metal and wood pieces. In addition to the displays of art, music has been added to the gallery with WHS choir students Lily Barrett and Megan West to perform one song each on Saturday at 4:20pm.
“Making the event even more special, the student-operated Panthers' Cafe will be open on Wednesday from 5:30pm to 6:30pm for coffee creations for purchase,” said Margaret Rice, WSD CTE Director. “And on Saturday from 2:30pm to 4:30pm CTE Culinary program students will be serving free appetizers they prepared in class, while supplies last.”
Yang will also have a loom set up for gallery visitors to be a part of a community weaving project to create fabric art.
