This special week long gallery exhibition is open to all ages and mediums, providing an opportunity for both budding and hobby artists to show off the artistic techniques they have learned throughout the year and proudly say, “I made this!”


The artwork on display will be as varied as the artists who created it. From highly expressive mixed media creations by young artists aged 3 to 12 to drawings and paintings created by accomplished adult artists during classes such as the immensely popular Corks and Canvas, this exhibition promises to celebrate the inner artist in all of us.
