Youth Art Day is an annual showcase of visual art, music and literary talent from students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The event features a large student art exhibition, as well as food, live music, dance performances, readings of award-winning literature and demonstrating artists.
This year’s Youth Art Day features “Perry County’s Got Talent,” a new take on the performance portion of the event for music and drama students. All students will receive constructive feedback by out-of-county performance evaluators, who will then select a standout performer to receive a $100 cash prize and a performance opportunity at a future PCCA event.
