Celebration to Take Place in Support of Youth Art Month


In honor of March being Youth Art Month, the community is invited to enjoy a celebration of youth art with an array of performances, interactive art activities, art vendors, food trucks and more, at the City of Santa Clarita’s fourth annual Youth Arts Showcase. The event will take place on Saturday, March 23, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at The Centre, located at 20880 Centre Pointe Parkway.      

Returning this year is the Santa Clarita Youth Art Gallery, with art pieces by local youth artists in the categories of Art on Canvas, Technical Art, and Pen and Paper. While viewing the gallery, attendees will have the opportunity to cast their vote for the people’s choice award. An awards ceremony will follow at 1:30 p.m.

Attendees will also be treated to dance and chorus performances on the Performing Arts Stage, and will get to watch as youth street painting teams turn The Centre parking lot into a masterpiece, as it is filled with eye-catching chalk art.

The event will also include an Interactive Youth Art area, where young artists can get their creativity flowing by making shadow puppets, building art robots, and receiving guided drawing lessons. Local dance and art studios will be on hand to lead movement classes, and interactive art demonstrations for attendees to enjoy as well.
