Clayton Proclaims January Student Art Month

The Clayton Town Council and Mayor Jody McLeod have proclaimed January as Student Art Month in the Town of Clayton.

At the request of the Woman’s Club of Clayton, the town adopted a proclamation at their Jan. 2nd meeting naming January as Student Art Month to help promote and support youth involvement in the arts.

Local middle and high school students, as well as Woman’s Club members, are currently exhibiting their work entered in the annual Woman’s Club Arts Festival competition.

The public can view the art and find out who won at a free reception from 6:00pm until 7:30pm this Thursday, Jan. 4th at The Clayton Center. Light refreshments will be served. Everyone is invited, especially children, who can see the artwork of their peers.
