The Contemporary Kids program presents artist, T.A. Riney, who will showcase how kids can make any material their canvas. He will have recyclable items for participants to choose from, and will exhibit how materials we throw away after use can be reborn into a work of art. After they choose their canvas they will create something new with their own inner voices. Please make sure parents bring their children an extra pair of clothes to paint in.
