Kid’s art contest helps valley

North Thompson Arts Council’s third annual Children’s Art Contest and Exhibition is underway

It’s the North Thompson Arts Council’s third annual Children’s Art Contest and Exhibition and this year is extra-special.

Almost 150 artworks were submitted and will be displayed in NTAC’s Gallery in Dutch Lake Community Centre, June 6 – 27.

Visitors to the gallery are invited to vote for their favourite entries in each category: preschool, primary, intermediate and high school.

A prize will be offered in each category for the artwork that receives the most votes.

Students were asked to submit work no larger than 8.5”x11” and create something with a wilderness theme.

Voting ballots are available at the gallery, which is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

The Children’s Art Contest was initiated as a way to help connect the arts community throughout the North Thompson Valley. This contest is open to all children living in the North Thompson Valley.

NTAC always welcomes support and interest from the community.

If you’d like to get involved, please contact 250-674-3530 or drop in when the gallery is open to chat.
