Every March, artwork created by local students grace the walls of the Birmingham Museum of Art’s Burrow Education Gallery in celebration of Youth Art Month. Students in kindergarten through twelfth grade in Birmingham-area schools are invited to submit works to celebrate visual arts education. This exhibition also serves as a recognition of the skills that are developed through visual arts education such as problem solving, creativity, observation, and communication.
