Creative artwork from Portland Public Schools students is included in the Portland Museum of Art’s annual Youth Art Month exhibition showcasing the incredible talent in Maine’s art education programs.
Every year in March, in collaboration with the Maine Art Education Association (MAEA), the PMA presents artwork made by Maine students statewide in kindergarten through grade 12. Youth Art Month also is an opportunity to highlight the art educators and the importance of and access to quality art programs. After several years of being virtual during the pandemic, Youth Art Month has returned to the PMA walls in 2023! You can view the artwork of students from East End, Ocean Avenue, Reiche and Talbot elementary schools and from Portland, Deering high schools as well as PATHS at the exhibition, located on the lower ground floor of the PMA. The show runs from March 1 through April 2, and also can be viewed digitally on PMA's website. Learn more.
