The Magic of Children in the Arts hosts the largest children's art exhibition in Canada at the Collingwood Public Library. The event is a shining example of a community working together to encourage children to create, exhibit and celebrate art. Funded entirely by donations from local businesses, service clubs, arts patrons, and municipal grants, our event has grown over the past 22 years to include over 1000 children in our community yearly. Any child aged 4-13 years in the Collingwood and Clearview area can participate for free. Their artwork is displayed in the Collingwood Library Gallery during March & April. Every child receives a prize package of top quality art materials to take home. This program fosters creativity, self esteem and arts appreciation!
