Young art collectors can get started early, even on a weekly allowance-type budget.
The Raymond James Gasparilla Festival of the Arts will present the Young Artist Showcase, selling artwork at affordable prices. This year, the Showcase invites children ages
5 to 12 to visit the Art Collectors in Training exhibit where they can purchase a work for $5 or $10. Filled with artwork donated by festival artists, each work will include the artist’s name and booth number to encourage a chat with the artist and an art signing.
All funds raised by ACT will benefit the Children’s Cancer Center.
The Gasparilla Festival of the Arts takes place this weekend, March 3 - 4 at Curtis Hixon Park in downtown Tampa and is free.
Fest hours are 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Sunday.
