On Saturday, March 7, from 1 to 3 pm, there will be an opening reception for the annual Children’s Art Show at Mena Art Gallery, 607 Mena Street.
One of the most amazing things about children’s art is the range of imagination they show; unfortunately, most of us lose that somewhere in the teen years, but it is good to be reminded of it. This is the children’s chance to shine!
In an effort to encourage this imagination, the gallery offers monthly classes for children aged 6 to 12, from 1 to 3 pm on the second Saturday of each month. Niki Dempsey does a great job of that. Classes are limited to 10 children in order to give each individual attention; there is a $2 per child per class fee to help cover the cost of supplies.
We would like to thank McDonald’s of Mena for again funding the awards for this show.
