Expressive Arts Showcase: 4-H Partners With Local Businesses

— Written By

For a family-friendly art walk, check out our 4-H Partners downtown Concord that are displaying our 4-H Expressive Arts winners. The displays include art from 4-H community club members and ribbon winners from both community clubs and 4-H Afterschool Sites. Youth are divided into three age divisions:  Cloverbud (5-7), Junior 8-13) and Senior (14-18). Cloverbud art received green ribbon recognition. Blue ribbons are awarded to the best in each category, in the Junior and Senior divisions. Best in Class were awarded to the judges selection for best Drawing & Painting, 3-D Art, Sewing, Photography & Other. One entry was selected for overall Junior Best in Show and Senior Best in Show.
