Wellington Seeks Student Artists

There’s a new opportunity for young Wellington artists to see their creations on public display. Wellington is teaming up with the Wellington Art Society for the Student Art Program, which puts youth artwork on display at the Wellington Community Center.

Middle school students who either live in Wellington or attend a Wellington school are invited to deliver their original works of art to the Wellington Community Center (12150 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Suite 100) on Wednesday, Jan. 15 between 4 and 6 p.m. The exhibit will open the following day, on Thursday, Jan. 16, and the artwork will be on display for a four-month rotation ending in May 2014.

Make sure the artwork is framed. The Wellington Art Society will select the artwork for the exhibit. Information and entry forms with program dates and guidelines are available from the Wellington Community Center, Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, visit www.wellingtonfl.gov.
