TROY — The annual Young Masters’ exhibit featuring the artwork of students in grades kindergarten through 12 has returned to the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center.

This exhibition of artistic creations by Troy’s talented art students will be on display from today through April 2. The exhibit is free and open to the public. This is the 28th Young Masters’ exhibition of student artwork.

Art teachers from Troy Christian Schools, St. Patrick Elementary School and Troy City Schools annually select work completed by local art students for the exhibit. Students consider it an honor to have work chosen for this show.

Teachers use a variety of mediums in the classroom to teach art history, aesthetics, criticism, and skill. This display of approximately 350 pieces illustrates the students’ artistic responses to the instruction they receive in the classroom.
