I’ve always loved children’s art. I still have some ceramic pieces from a stint as a camp counselor more than forty years ago. One of my Stepson’s pieces is on proud display on a bookshelf in the living room and drawings by the Step Potato and Step Banana hang in the kitchen. So I always look forward to the Annual Young Artists Exhibition at Fleisher Art Memorial. This years’ show, on view until June 16, showcases the work of 500 kids from ages 5 to 18, who participate in art programs at Fleisher. I naturally gravitate toward the pottery but I enjoy it all.
Another great Fleisher-sponsored art program for kids and one for which I volunteer is Color Wheels. Read more about Color Wheels here.
