Youth Art Month

Posted: February 20, 2012 in Field Trips, Hall of Fame

It’s almost Youth Art Month at the Grace Museum in Abilene again, which means the best work from local art programs will be pouring in to be in a special event that will showcase the work of young artists. 

Colorado High School will be represented by eleven worthy students as their works have been submitted for the show.  Congratulations Alesia, Alexis, Alexa, Amanda, Ricky, Israel, Joseph, Marisela, NIkki, Chloe, and Payton!
