Students in North Hastings are thrilled that their artwork will be on display at Art Gallery of Bancroft. The Your Kid Did Do This show is the first of its kind in the area to feature exhibits from children up to age 10.
All area elementary schools are represented: Bancroft Public School, Bird’s Creek Public School, Coe Hill School, Hermon Public School and Maynooth Public School. Artwork was created at home or school.
An opening reception is scheduled for Saturday, December 5 following the Bancroft Santa Claus parade. All students who have submitted work are welcome to attend with a parent/guardian. Another children’s event is scheduled for Saturday, December 19 at 3:00 p.m. All children who have submitted a piece of art are eligible for draw prizes of art supplies.
The gallery is open to the public Wednesday to Friday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Throughout December, craftspersons and artists will be at the gallery on Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to create art with children who come to view the exhibit.
A large mural, I was at the art gallery, is also on display at the gallery for children to draw on.
