“This will be our 10th Annual Youth Art Show and we are very pleased to have been encouraging the creativity of our youth for so many years. It is through exhibits like this one that we are able to show children firsthand the importance of art in a community,” said Prattauga Art Guild President, Peggy Raines.
The students will receive their awards on stage again this year as part of the Prattville City Fest events. “This is an exciting part of the show for the children, as well as for the Art Guild and the City to be able to showcase our young and talented participants at this event.
