16th Annual McAllen ISD Young at Art is an annual exhibit presented in conjunction with McAllen ISD. This exhibition of student artwork celebrates National Youth Art Month, which emphasizes the value of art education for all children, and includes works from McAllen ISD students from 6th through 12th grade in the professional setting of IMAS. This year, McAllen ISD will be presenting its 16th Annual Young at Art exhibition.
Beginning in the 1960s, schools all over the United States have recognized the importance of art education during the month of March. Art educators know that visual arts experiences foster the development of skills in problem solving, creativity, observation and communication. During March, special exhibitions like MISD Young at Art showcase those abilities and allow us to appreciate the excellent work our children create.
