KMC youth invited to get artsy!

The 435th Services Youth Programs is one of more than 4,400 clubs across the country joining in a search to identify talented young artists.

The competition is part of Boys and Girls Clubs of America’s National Fine Arts Exhibit program.

The clubs’ program is a comprehensive initiative promoting young people’s creativity and encouraging artistic skills and cultural enrichment.

As a participant, Youth Programs may submit members’ artwork in four age divisions and 10 categories, including watercolor, pastel, oil, acrylic and collage. Selected artwork will be screened at the regional level and a limited number will be sent to the Boys and Girls Clubs Atlanta headquarters for judging at the national level. Thirty-seven national winners will be named and their artwork displayed at special events throughout the year.

Youth up to 18 years old can submit their artwork to their local youth center by Nov. 30. For submission details, contact your local youth center. (Courtesy of 435th Services Squadron)
