The Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library is partnering with teachers from Zionsville Community Schools to celebrate the annual Youth Art Month in March.

Youth Art Month is a national program that began in 1961 by the Art and Creative Materials Institute to celebrate the value of art and art education for children. The library has participated in the program since 2011.

“It’s purpose is to promote art in schools and to show the value of art for students by encouraging creativity, planning and communication. It really is to point out all the great things kids are doing at schools with art,” said Jamie Schlenk, HMMPL youth services department head.

The library will host several free classes aimed at different age groups. They include:

• March 8 – Paper Pop Art

• March 17 – Working with Color and Pattern

• March 24 – The Bike Ride

“Some (classes) are put on by outside groups and some are done by the ZCS art teacher and the art club at the high school,” Schlenk said.

The library and other businesses around Zionsville will house student artwork throughout the month.
