Art show for kids

Art show for kids

Saturday’s cold and wet weather didn’t keep parents or students from coming to an art show in Joplin. Missouri Southern played host to the 8th Annual K through 12 Art Show.

Art from students at more than a dozen area schools was on display for a reception. The show is put on to help students gain confidence in their skills in a low pressure environment.

“I’ve never really had anything in a show like this, but I really think it’s kind of cool because not very many people get the opportunity. I’ll probably continue with it and I’ll probably take art in college maybe, but I think it’s cool to get this opportunity,” Jacie Frencken, a student from Pineville Elementary.

The artwork will stay on display at the Spiva Art Gallery until the 18th.
