Magic of Children 2015~ a record year in entries!!

The 2015 Magic of Children in the Arts was another stellar year with several FIRSTS!

  • The show ran for TWO Months for the first time from March 3-April 28 2015
  • We had a record number of children participate- 679!
  • We brought in two Art Stars to lead a fantastic weekend-long Mind-Craft Sculpture Installation at the Collingwood Public Library. Over 50 kids helped Anne Barber and Brad Harley from Shadowland Theatre create a painted cardboard replica of downtown Collingwood. It was a lot of fun and the kids did a fantastic job.
  • We had an Art Print Satellite Show at the Press Room Gallery across the street. Prints were made of a selection of the children's artwork and displayed on the walls for a month.
  • We sold a few of the prints for $5 each.
  • We expanded our outreach teaching program to include 2-3 visits to participating schools.
  • We had classrooms from Collingwood schools drop in and visit the show.
  • We had a record number of kids enjoy the free Library art artworks leading up the show.
