Hattiesburg students have art displayed in William Carey art exhibit

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Thursday was a special day for 13 kids who got to have their art displayed at the Sarah Gillipie Museum at William Carey University in Hattiesburg.

The students from United Christian Academy in Hattiesburg not only got to learn about art, but also see their masterpieces on display in a museum setting.

The event is sponsored by the Carey About Art at WCU, which is an extension of the Ellsworth Grants, a program out of New York that allows the university to take on projects every year that benefit the community around William Carey.

The idea is to give the children an idea of what an art program might be if they were in a school system where arts are funded like as it is in many large states and cities. And that's something these students wouldn't be able to learn otherwise. 

The students not only got the chance learn how to make art, they also learned how to appreciate it as well.

The kids' art will stay on display until next Wednesday, so If you want a chance to come see it, just to come to the Sarah Gillipie Musem on William Carey's Campus.
