|An "Evening with Children's Art" fundraiser is April 28|
The University Children’s Center will host the first annual “Evening with Children’s Art” from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday, April 28, at the Skalicky Tech Center. The event showcases young children’s art, as well as donated pieces from local artists that will be sold through silent auction. The public is invited and all proceeds will benefit programs at the Children’s Center.
Children ages 2-5 attending UCC have been working on art pieces with Grand Forks artist, Kim Dohrman. The children in each group learned about different artists and artistic techniques and then tried out techniques for themselves. Examples of the techniques used include collage, scissor cutting and pointillism. Each child’s art piece will be professionally framed and displayed for families and the community to view.
Co-chairs for the event are former UCC director Mae Marie Blackmore and UCC parent Marci Glessner.
Tickets are $15 and may be purchased at the University Children’s Center at 525 Stanford Road; call -777-3947 for more information. The event is open to the public and is sponsored by the Office of Work Force Development, Residence Services, College of Education and Human Development, College of Nursing, College of Arts and Sciences, Second Street Puppets, Art & Learn, and Michael’s Crafts.
