Friday, August 4, 2006 was opening day at the New Jersey State Fair in Augusta, NJ. I was there to volunteer at CRAYOLA'S Art of Childhood Exhibit.
Images of State Fairs bring to mind funnel cakes, ice cream and prize winning sheep. Well this year at the Fair, add Children's Artwork to the list of must see attractions!
Twenty pieces of art were included in the Fair from Mount Prospect School, with two coming in Second Place in their categories. It was exciting to see Crayola's colorful ribbons on the two selections. The winners will receive their awards on Tuesday, August 8, 2006 at the Artist's reception (3:00 pm). All student's who have artwork in this exhibit will receive a certificate and something special from Crayola -- ALL are invited to come!
The Fair is the perfect backdrop for the exhibit, allowing people to come see the artwork and complete a project provided by Crayola. If you have any time between now and August 13, 2006 I would encourage you to visit the fair!
Congratulations to all the students who had artwork accepted into this juried exhibit and an extra Congratulations to our 2 second place winners!
