A Wapakoneta art center has recently won a regional award for their education of the arts.

Riverside Art Center won the Ohio Art Education Association's Distinguished Business/Organization Service Award back in June.  The art center was given the award for their student art shows that they hold every year.  Those with Riverside say that teaching art to these students gives the kids a different way to show off their talents. 

"When they're allowed to do their own thing they light up and is just incredible to watch them discover the art and discover they can make that picture or they can draw this and giving them the freedom express themselves the way they'd like to," said Connie Kiser, art coordinator at Riverside Art Center.

The student art shows are held every year in January and February.
