Local children’s artwork fills Latcham Gallery
A panorama of exuberant art, of every colour, style and shape that a young mind can imagine, will fill the Latcham Gallery in Stouffville from April 10 to 24. Everyone is welcome to attend during regular gallery hours.
Every year, local elementary schools are invited to show their students' works during the Celebrations: The Young at Art Exhibition at this public art gallery.
"A consistent trend among all the schools has been a focus on the environment including art projects using recycled materials," noted gallery curator Maura Broadhurst. This year, you'll see everything from rock paintings by Grade 2 St. Mark students, inspired by early cave paintings, to Japanese landscape scrolls by the Grade 6 and 7 class at Stouffville Christian School. And don't forget the models of mediaeval villages, canoes, landscapes, pastels and 3-D interior models, to name just a few more.
Past exhibitions have featured everything from large, almost life size, sculptures of animals such as giraffes and gorillas to sophisticated photography projects.
This is also a great opportunity for local schools and other groups to bring their classes to the gallery to see what the town's young people are accomplishing.
