Children’s Art at Mena Art Gallery

March may not be coming in like a lion this year, but it’s just about to get here, and with it the Children’s Art Show for 2015. And this year there will be no entry fee for the children’s art.

This is the annual show where we feature work of children up through middle school. If your child would like to enter some of his or her artwork, please bring it to the gallery at 607 Mena Street on Wednesday, March 4, between 10 am and 4 pm. There will be cash awards for the winners and ribbons for everyone entering.

If you need details, please call the gallery at 479-394-3880 between 11 am and 2 pm on Tuesday or 10 am and 3 pm Wednesday through Saturday.

If your child (6 years old to 12 years old) would enjoy an art class, please call the gallery to make a reservation. Classes are held from 1 to 3 pm on the 2nd Saturday of each month. Reservations are required because we limit class size so that each child can have individual attention. There is a $2 per class fee for each child attending to help cover the cost of materials.

And just to add to the fun, there will be a reception on Saturday, March 7, between 1 and 3 pm. We’ll hand out awards, the children can have the thrill of seeing their work displayed on the walls of the gallery for everyone to admire, and there are always munchies for the adults as well as the children.
