Let's celebrate the fantastic, the wild, the thoughtful, the colourful, the joyous, the fun, the imaginative - the art of children.
From May 17 to 24, the art and creative writing of children from Gibsons, Cedar Grove and Langdale Elementary schools will paper the town of Gibsons as windows of local businesses become a community gallery.
Every child from these schools has been invited to participate in this massive public exhibit. Businesses around the community have made window display space available for the children's art and written work to honour all the children in this non-juried show that has no categories for age, grade or school. All the children are encouraged to submit the creations they wish to show.
Usually only family sees the creative achievements of kids. The larger community doesn't see the drawings or the stories on the fridge. One of our greatest resources, the creativity of children, is often not given the value it deserves. All our children are gifted. We have a wealth of talent in our community - and we are celebrating it.
