Boys & Girls Clubs of Porter County recently held their annual judging of Club member’s submitted artwork as part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Fine Arts Program. Member’s artwork is divided into four age divisions and 10 categories, including watercolor, pastel, oil, acrylic and collage. The work is then judged at the local level to move on to the regional level and then if selected a limited number will be sent for judging at the national level. The Fine Arts Program is a comprehensive initiative promoting young people’s creativity and encouraging artistic skills and cultural enrichment.
