Kids! Submit Your Art for Jurying for the 2013 Kids Art Fair

Wednesday May 1, 2013: 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm -- Pittsfield Branch: Program Room

The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, the Original, is calling young artists from Washtenaw County in 3rd - 8th grades to submit their artwork to be juried for the 2013 Kids' Art Fair (to be held at the Townie Street Party on the evening of Monday, July 15.).

You need to attend only one of these three drop-in sessions at Pittsfield Branch. Interested young artists should arrive with 4-6 samples of their original artwork and be prepared to show and discuss their art with Jurors. Artists will have ample opportunity to show and discuss their art work with Jurors.

Drop-in sessions will be held: Sunday, April 28 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm; Wednesday, May 1 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, and Sunday, May 5 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

The Kids' Art Fair is a unique opportunity for young artists to interact with the community and sell their original artwork at the Townie Street Party. In addition, this is a great chance for young artists to see the jury process at work and to interact with arts educators on a one-on-one basis. The young artists receive individual attention by the Jurors and the positive feedback is often very empowering.

Young artists invited to exhibit at the Kids' Art Fair will be notified by email in mid-May. The selected artists will be able to sell their work under tents at the July 15th Townie Street Party, which takes place on E. Washington between Thayer and Fletcher and on Ingalls. Additional information may be found attfair.org. The Kids' Art Fair is presented by the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, The Original and is sponsored by Toyota.
