“Recently I was very lucky to have my art in AFRU Gallery’s annual kids show located in Portland Oregon I submitted pieces from left to right Requiem for a Rainbow , Charlie Bird and White Noise Calling which I primarily made with ink colored pencil and watercolor marker I didn’t make a sketch for any of these which means that they are just straight ink colored pencil onto paper with no guidelines.

I believe that it is important to give kids the opportunity to show their artistic skills publicly. Not only it a fun event but an experience that gives them valuable exposure and knowledge if or when they have art shows later on in their lives. Having something that you created which could potentially sell be apart of something official is invigorating especially for those at the younger age. I think that AFRU’s annual kids show leaves a general positive impact on those who participate in it. “
