Youth Art Day 2020 CANCELED

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Youth Art Day has been cancelled. PCCA staff is creatively working toward alternate solutions to showcase the amazing talent of our Perry County students.

Our county-wide youth art exhibition showcases the creative and talented students throughout Perry County, and is held at each Perry County school on a rotating basis. The event is open to the public and offers a day filled with activities for audiences of all ages!

How to prepare your artwork in the simplest way

Tape it to a piece of black construction paper or poster board that is cut larger (about 2-3 inches) on each side, or use a pre-cut mat board from a picture frame. This extra support prevents it from getting bent.
