If you are accustomed to seeing wall-to-wall books in floor-to-ceiling shelves in a library. For the next four weeks, the Natrona County Public Library will look a little different, adorned with colorful creations from the hands of Casper's elementary students. The annual Elementary District Art Show opens Thursday, March 28 and runs until Thursday, April 25 at the Natrona County Public Library. This year's theme is "Every Child an Artist." Parents, family members and students are invited to a special artists reception on April 4 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Library. This is the signature evening of the entire show, where students can proudly show off their work to their loved ones. In addition, there will be seven centers with art activities for students. All of the elementary art teachers will be present to host the event. This evening draws hundreds to the Art Show every year.

This annual event started in the mid-late 1990's as a way for the greater community to value the creations that come out of the minds of the district's youngest artists. To show kids that their artwork is worthy of appreciation and more than just refrigerator decorations.

The public is invited to take some time to browse the pieces displayed at the Elementary District Art Show between March 28 and April 25.
