Young at Art


Children who receive high-quality art education develop visual literacy and creative problem-solving skills that are vital for succeeding in today’s world. Presenting works of art by Madison Metropolitan School District students in kindergarten through grade twelve, Young at Art highlights the high caliber of studio art instruction in Madison’s public schools as well as the integration of art history and cultural studies in the visual art curriculum. Organized biennially, Young at Art is the result of a long-standing collaboration between the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and the school district’s fine arts department. Madison’s public school art teachers select works of art for the exhibition; each teacher is invited to submit up to three works of art for display. To reflect best practices in art education, the exhibition includes works made by individual students and by groups of students who have worked collaboratively. As a whole, Young at Art demonstrates students’ imagination and talent and calls attention to their expressive potential. Young at Art will be on view in the museum’s State Street Gallery
