Last year's Art is Elementary exhibit.

An enticing land of make-believe, with yellow rolling hills and towering mountains reaching for cotton clouds in the sky. A bank of trees perched atop beautiful green foliage, the salmon-colored background screaming for attention. A spooky world of spiderwebs overtaking vibrant-colored strips as a black spider dances on her web.

The young students who created these and many other masterpieces have boundless imaginations, and their creativity will be on full display in the annual Art is Elementary exhibit at the Berna Facio Professional Development Complex, 3315 Louisiana Blvd. NE.

The exhibit kicks off on Feb. 12 and runs through March 14. Exhibit hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Feb. 24, March 2, and March 9.

The artists will be honored at an opening reception from 4 to 7 p.m. on Feb. 12, also at Berna Facio. Local food trucks will be on hand.
