Kids centre stage in art exhibition

An exhibition dedicated entirely to art work created by children will be held in Wexford Arts Centre this summer.

Children of all ages are invited to submit works on the theme of 'My Place'.

Young artists are asked to convey visually what their home environment means to them.

The Arts Centre is committed to fostering an interest in artistic endeavour among children. Research confirms that arts education strengthens the child's ability to problem solve and enchances critical reasoning skills. Masterpieces for the forthcoming exhibition can be created on boards supplied by the Arts Centre, using any media – crayon, paint, watercolour, collage, pasetls pencils etc.

Boards are available to collect now and the entry fee is €5.

The deadline for the submission of completed works is Friday, June 14.

The exhibition of children's work will open on Saturday, June 22 at 12.30 p.m. and will run until Saturday, July 13.
