The region’s biggest annual youth art exhibition, Young at Art is back at Mystic Arts Center.
Young at Art will showcase creative work from hundreds of regional students ages 18 and younger in Mystic Arts Center’s galleries. Come see original artwork in a variety of media from oil, photography, and sculpture to mixed media pieces. Submissions will come from all over New London County and Rhode Island with many group projects from area schools displayed.
