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. Twenty young students were prompted to think about their imaginary friends and then bring them to life through drawing and painting. Over the last two months, Make.Shift Gallery promoted an open call to artists in the community encouraging them to create original responses inspired by the kid’s artwork. Every year these collaborations provide an exciting and inspirational experience for youth, artists, and the viewing public. The First Friday opening will also feature creative activities for children hosted by Play Lab, a local after-school enrichment program.To learn more about Play Lab please visit their website at play-lab.org.
