Sunday April 26

Start with Art is an annual exhibition at the Seymour Art Gallery. This exciting display aims to educate children and cultivate the love of art and art collecting. Established artists will exhibit artwork, offer advice for young artists, and share childhood memories about art-making.
We know some kids save up their allowance for this show, so artwork is priced in a kid-friendly range and is only available for purchase by kids 16 and younger. The purchasing and appreciation of art can be a very fulfilling experience, and this exhibition, displayed at “kids eye-view”, provides the opportunity for children to feel a sense of wonder and empowerment.
