Kid's Art Walk: Imaginary Friends


Every year, Make.Shift Gallery celebrates Kid's Art Walk in May. This year, we've partnered with Cedar Tree Montessori and asked 4th to 6th grade students to create artistic renderings of their imaginary friends.

We invite YOU to create a piece of art inspired by the work of these talented kids. 

Our exhibit will display these works by students and local artists side-by-side through the month of May. The opening will be on Art Walk Friday, May 4th from 6-10pm.

Assignments Available NOW!
Make.Shift is open Tues.-Sat. from 12-5pm.
You may also sign up and pick up an assignment packet at the next Art Walk on April 6th.

ENTRY DEADLINE: Saturday, April 28th

Depending on the amount of response pieces we receive, the gallery committee may select the piece(s) we feel best meet the spirit of the original artwork.

How it works:
Starting NOW, you can stop by Make.Shift to sign up and pick up an assignment packet. You will receive a photo and information about one of the student-made characters to work from.

You may submit 1-2 pieces in any medium of your choice.

There is no size or media requirement!

Turn in your finished piece at Make.Shift between 12pm and 5pm on Saturday April 28th. Please include your assignment packet.
