Celebrating its 29th anniversary this year, the Student Art Town Exhibit is part of The Community House’s “Experience the Arts” youth engagement program. This special event showcases the creative talents of young artists from elementary to high school throughout Metro Detroit. A wide variety of artwork from drawings to landscapes and photography to watercolor will turn the halls of The Community House into a very special student gallery. The Community House invites friends, family and the public to enjoy the exhibition free of charge on Friday, March 15 from 9:00 am-6:00 pm.
On Saturday, March 16, The Community House will invite participating schools to join us for two awards ceremonies, based on student grade level. Student artists and their teachers are invited as our guests to enjoy a brunch or luncheon and be honored by their teachers in front of their classmates and other art students throughout the area. The Elementary School Brunch will be held from 9:30-11:00 AM and the Middle and High School Lunch takes place from 12:00-1:30 PM. Family and friends of the students are also invited to join in on the festivities and celebrate these great young artists for a small fee of $20.
