Lorimier Gallery & Gallery 100
15th Annual Children's Arts Festival

On exhibit from: February 6 - 28, 2015

Reception: February 6, 4:00 - 9:00 pm

The Arts Council invites you to attend a reception for the 15th Annual Children’s Arts Festival. This much-loved exhibit, which features visual art pieces and poetry by children from 22 regional schools, will be on display until February 28th. Introduced in the year 2000, the Children’s Arts Festival was developed as a way to showcase what local arts teachers, and their students, are doing in their classrooms.

The show is juried, and the top 8 entries in each age group, from 3rd to 8th grade, are featured in a booklet distributed at the event. The student poetry section will also be continued in the 15th Annual Children’s Arts Festival. Students were prompted to write a poem about a piece of their own artwork. One winner will be selected from each grade level for this category as well.

Cookies will be provided for guests courtesy of Chick-Fil-A, and juice boxes will also be available, thanks to McDonalds.

Thank you to the local sponsors of this event: Walmart, Red Letter Communications, SoutheastHEALTH, Cape Radiology Group, Alliance Bank, Wood and Huston Bank, and Cape Endodontics.
