PEPPERELL — Three young Pepperell Art students have been selected to display their creative works at Worcester Art Museum this March.

The work of Varnum Brook Elementary students Mallory York, a third grader, and fourth graders Brigitte Yargeau and Caitlin Ludford is now on display at the Worcester Art Museum as part of Youth Art Month, an event celebrating the art kindergartners through eighth graders from Massachusetts.

Youth Art Month’s mission is to emphasize the value of art education for all children and encourage support for the quality of art programs in Massachusetts’ schools.

Art teachers from 35 cities and towns have volunteered their time to make this event possible.

Exhibitors will have their work displayed until March 30 in the Higgins Education wing of the Worcester Art Museum, located at 55 Salisbury Street in Worcester. Admission to the Higgins wing is free and it will be open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

An opening reception for the artists and families is scheduled for March 11. A reception for high school students will take place on Thursday, March 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. where older art students will have an opportunity to meet contemporaries and discuss career possibilities.
