During the March for Youth Art, the City of Savannah Municipal Archives released Student Visual Art as a virtual offering this month.

“Watching and creating visual arts can help learners of all ages be creative, problem-solving, observational and communicative,” according to municipal archives staff. To help, families can view virtual offerings through the city’s Cultural Arts Center (savannahga.gov/1041/Classes-Workshops) or search for art in their own neighborhoods.

The Municipal Archives encourage teachers and families to consult our Living Archives! The “Art in the Archives” program, available online at savannahga.gov/3058/Archives-Alive.

“Savannah has many talented young artists, and to showcase them we wanted to showcase these works from the 2016 Elementary Art Competition celebrating Savannah National Historic District,” according to City Archives staff.
