On Thursday, April 13, the Junior Women's Club of Barnesville once again sponsored hands on demonstrations from local artists in hosting their annual Youth Art Fair in the Barnesville Middle School gymnasium. The educational event, under the direction of art teacher, Mrs. Marge Young was available to 5th grade students and is an opportunity to introduce them to various forms of art.
