Studio 209: Youth


Throughout the year, the Center hosts youth exhibitions featuring student art from our local schools. Opening receptions coincide with the City’s First Friday concerts and events held at the Ritz Amphitheater.

Wild About Art presented by Thomas County School’s Pre-8th grade students focuses on Wildlife Art. Animals have always been an underlying theme in art. Whether artists have used them literally or figuratively, with or without human subjects, they somehow command the composition and make meaning in ways previously unimaginable. Throughout art history, animals have served as vessels for happiness, distress, environmental issues, gender studies, and more.


FREE and open to the public.
