‘Bee among roses’ by Holly Lishman

ArtKids! Now at the Village Gallery!

The ability to create is a human necessity it helps us define who we as a human being.

With help from local schools and parents the Monashee Arts council have been able to bring together 30 youth artists and over 50 pieces of art work for ArtKids! From portraits of celebrities to landscapes and abstract takes of life have brought in a kaleidoscope of skilled young artists from as young as four years all the way up to 24 years old.

Please visit the Village Gallery, 1975 Vernon Street. (Highway 6) during our open hours of 10-4, Monday to Saturday. 

Also remember October 31st (Halloween) will be our second hand art supply sale out front the Gallery. We hope you will come stock up on artist supplies for the young artist in your family while you enjoy the show.
