Young Arts Month exhibit honors Fallbrook artists

FALLBROOK – Six young local artists submitted their artwork for judging into the annual Youth Art Month Exhibit for San Diego County, which opened Jan. 11 and ran through Feb. 8, in the Bread and Salt Gallery in The Athenaeum Art Center in San Diego.

These students study art at the Fallbrook School of the Arts under the instruction of Marilee Ragland who is a member of the San Diego County division of the California Art Education Association. The Youth Art Month exhibit is a collaborative production of the CAEASD and the San Diego County Office of Education.

San Diego County art teachers entered over 200 artworks in this K-12 competition. Of these submissions about 50% were juried into the show. The closing awards reception was attended by the students and their families shown in the photographs on this page. All students were recognized with certificates, and awards were presented in four grade level categories: K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12.

Students in Ragland's next Art Expressions Classes, beginning March 3, will enter one of their artworks in the Creative Youth Exhibit at the 2020 San Diego County Fair.
