Washougal Youth Arts Month celebrates student works

The Columbian

WASHOUGAL — Washougal School District and Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance joined forces to celebrate Washougal Youth Arts Month in March.

The cornerstone event was the Washougal Youth Arts Month Gallery, showcasing student works created in art and career and technical education classes from all Washougal schools.

Displayed art pieces included multimedia, watercolor, clay, video, as well as works with photography, metal and wood pieces. Music was added to the gallery with WHS choir students.

Local elementary and middle school art teacher Alice Yang set up a loom for gallery visitors to use to take part in a community weaving project to create fabric art.

Washougal Youth Arts Month received formal recognition from both the city of Washougal and Washougal school board. “By collaborating in this rich arts endeavor with our community, we are supporting a partnership opportunity to know, nurture, and challenge all students in Washougal to rise to their creative potential,” said Superintendent Mary Templeton.
