We encourage you to bring your children to visit the gallery in Mint Hill at 11205 Lawyers Rd –and be inspired! They may pick a painting (or other type of work) from our current show to imitate. We will provide paper and colored pencils so that the child can copy the work while you peruse our June and July art show. Winners will be selected by August 1st and announced at our August Opening Reception (7:00 p.m. on August 2, 2019). You don’t have to be present to win.
