HANCOCK -- The Copper Country Community Arts Center is featuring artwork from area elementary, middle, and high school students March 10-31. The opening reception will be held from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. at the Arts Center on Saturday, March 10.

This is an exhibit not to be missed! The Youth Gallery and the Kerredge Gallery will be filled floor to ceiling with amazing youth art. March is a time where our young artists get to shine. And it’s a time not only to celebrate youth art, but to appreciate the art teachers who work throughout the school year encouraging and inspiring their students.

A special thank you to the exemplary art teachers who went above and beyond by bringing in their students’ work for Celebrate Youth Arts Month: Houghton Elementary: Melissa Hronkin; Houghton High School: Kristine Halonen; Baraga Area Schools: Bob Foster; Lake Linden-Hubbell Schools and Washington Middle School: Danielle Alfafara; Calumet High School: Susan Rosemurgy; Calumet Elementary School: Debbie Mues; Barkell Elementary and Hancock Middle School: Karen Scholie; and Hancock High School: Kris Raisanen Schourek.
