ARTOCONECTO, THE DYNAMIC MIAMI ARTS NON-PROFIT, PRESENTS:
KIDSART: The Art Show! With a Special LIVE performance by Oscar Fuentes and Friends at 7:30PM!
The kids worked hard creating their projects for five weeks and now they are ready for their Opening Night! Come see their work at Wynwood's Second Saturday Art Walk!
On Saturday mornings this summer, KIDSART brought a group of kids right into the studios of five notable Miami artists. Each week, a different artist led the kids in a workshop they created based on community-oriented themes, like sustainable art, recycling, or diversity. The kids learned the importance of having art and creativity in their lives, and got to know artists, and each other, in a very personal way. Working on arts projects together, and then sitting down to lunch to discuss their work, brought them a new, and bold perspective on art in Miami, and in their lives. Come see their collaborative creations, and get a glimpse of the artists' work as well!
