West Valley Boys and Girls Club Great Futures Start Here




Annual Exhibit Showcases Club's Artistic Talent
It's no secret that arts education is underfunded in our public schools. The Club works to bridge the gap and foster not only creativity, but problem solving, visual learning, and overall academic achievement through art, as well.
 
On Friday, January 20, 2017, the Club unveiled more than 70 works of art and 34 photos produced by art program participants. Pieces were created by fifty young artists from the Club and represented a variety of media, including water color, acrylic, multi-media, pastel and charcoal, pencil and photography. Attendees voted for their favorite entries and the winners will be submitted to the Boys & Girls Club of America National Arts Exhibit and Photography Exhibit. 
 
Rounding out the event's celebration of the arts, Club members and emerging thespians Preston Salvador, Tiffany Juga, Ava Marie Perez and Alyssa Heard each performed monologues written by D.M. Larson.
