Pickens County Youth Arts Month set to be celebrated in March

PICKENS — The Pickens County Cultural Commission announced recently that, in recognition of “National Youth Arts” month as well as “National Music in our Schools” month, March has again been designated as Pickens County Youth Arts Month.

The Pickens County Museum of Art and History and the schools of Pickens County will celebrate with a reception for parents and students on Saturday March 7, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

For the safety and comfort of visitors, the reception is broken into three categories. Officials encourage family to visit during the time frame most appropriate for their child. Elementary schools will be celebrating from 10 a.m.-noon. A special “thank you” presentation to elementary schools is set for 11:30 a.m. Middle schools will be the highlight from noon-1:30 p.m., with a middle schools award ceremony at 1 p.m. High School kudos will cap off the day from 1:30-3 p.m., with the high school awards ceremony taking place at 2:30 p.m.

In addition to the visual arts exhibition, which will be on display beginning Saturday, Feb. 28, and continuing through March 26, the School District of Pickens County will be hosting a selection of other exhibits, concerts and performances taking place at a variety of locations throughout March.
