The College of the Canyons Art Gallery will present “Budding Artists,” an exhibit featuring artwork created by the children enrolled in the college’s Center for Early Childhood Education, beginning Saturday, April 13.
“Budding Artists” will debut with a special open house event during the Week of the Young Child Play Day, being held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 13. The exhibit will then run through Saturday, April 27.
“We are very excited to share the artwork created by CECE children with their families and the community,” said Pamela Lewis, COC Art Gallery director.
A silent auction fundraiser will also be held for the duration of the exhibit with proceeds going toward the CECE. The deadline for silent auction bidding is noon on Saturday, April 27. The exhibit’s closing reception will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on that day with auction winners announced at the beginning of the program.
“We are excited to feature this new fundraiser for a second year,” said Monica Marshall, CECE program director. “We will be auctioning nine items created by our budding artists.”
