MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The Meridian Museum of Art held an exhibit where they showcased arts and crafts work of 130 plus students enrolled in summer classes.

The museum held its annual art showcase that has been around for decades to help expose young minds to the world of arts.

K-12th graders showed off their painting and drawing skills to their families as well as peers. Organizers said that this has been a successful summer for the program.

“We have been doing arts education in the summer for our children since we were made as a museum 51 years ago. It is one of the largest programs I have been a part of in 12 years. When I walked in here to see the mass of the work, I was amazed by the color explosion,” said education director Marsha Iverson.

Organizers said that they offer afterschool programs for 12 weeks during the fall and spring. You may visit their website to learn more.
