PRIZM, a non-profit literary and visual arts group, hosted their first ever youth art exhibition. The “Color My World” exhibit opened at Way Public Library in Perrysburg on August 17 and continues until October 13. Youth from toddlers to middle schoolers had the opportunity to showcase their talents using tools of their choice to create works of art following the library’s summer reading theme, “Every Hero Has a Story,” PRIZM’s creative challenge theme, “Seasons of Change,” or a theme of their own. PRIZM members thought this exhibition would be a wonderful way to mentor young artists and help them make great memories over the summer. Annette Jensen, PRIZM President, says, “Enjoying the innocence of children’s art is always inspiring.” This is why the members decided to do an event for younger artists. In the past, the group hosted a Careers in Creativity conference for high school students. At the beginning of the year, PRIZM will be showcasing art from local preschoolers. Annette believes that when talent is encouraged at a young age, it always develops into something amazing.
