ROCK SPRINGS — The first youth art exhibit is hung up and ready for students to bring family and friends to view their creations. More than 150 students from Northpark and Overland Elementary Schools and the Desert School are featured in this exhibit through February 13 at the Community Fine Arts Center.
Each year, displays of student art from Sweetwater County School District #1 mark the celebration of National Youth Art Month.

Students worked in a variety of media including watercolor, markers, collage and chalk. Following state standards for education, students explore techniques, study important artists throughout history, and learn terms such as perspective, balance, shape, form, tint and value.
