Budding artists will have their work on display during the next three weeks as part of the Albert Lea Art Center’s annual Elementary/ Secondary Student Art Show.
The show kicks off with an open house from 1 to 3 p.m. today at the Art Center, 224 S. Broadway. Refreshments will be served.
“It’s always a popular show,” said Tom Mullen, an Art Center board member and former elementary art teacher.”The kids’ work is fun.”

On display will be everything from watercolors to drawings to cut paper and even some sculpture.
Participating students are from Albert Lea Area Schools and St. Theodore Catholic School.
“The children, when they start making art, they get excited,” Mullen said. “This gives them another venue to display it.”
He said each year people are impressed with the complexity of the projects.
The show will be on display at the Art Center through April 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays, and from noon to 4 p.m. Sundays.
