Announcing the annual “Young at Art” student display of visual arts sponsored by Nevada County Superintendent of Schools. It is part of a national program recognizing March as Youth Art Month and is a public testimony to the value of the arts in education. The public is invited to view “Young at Art” displays from students across the county at the Rood Center following all the safety protocols and precautions due to the COVID pandemic. The Rood Center, located at 950 Maidu Lane, Nevada City is open Monday through Friday 8am-4:30pm and the student art display runs through the end of May 2022.

This is a great opportunity to experience the delightful, joyous creativity of Nevada County’s students and the hard work and expertise of the county’s teachers and staff. Every year, students demonstrate the clever integration of core academic subjects (math, science, social studies) through the arts. The arts (dance, theatre arts, media arts, music, and visual arts) help students develop cognitive, emotional intelligence, and artistic pathways to help fine-tune skills in communication, critical thinking, imagination, and creativity.

If you cannot make it to the Rood Center, the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools office will post a slideshow of the “Young at Art” student displays in March.
