Students from Rochester Community Schools will have artwork on display starting tonight in a regional art show at Oakland Schools.
More than 235 students from across Oakland County will have works featured in the Young at Art exhibit. The show is sponsored by the Michigan Art Education Association; every K-12 art educator was able to enter five works of art for each grade level taught into the juried show.
About 50 of the pieces will advance to a state competition in Lansing next month.
