Kids’ Art for KidStart has raised the profile of Comox Valley’s young artists and generated funds for KidStart two years in a row. Thanks goes to all the artists and attendees of the Kids’ Art for KidStart art making event on August 19 and gallery opening on August 31 at Mudsharks Coffee. A big shout out to artist Tracy Kobus for giving an inspiring art lesson to the kids and donating an original painting to the fundraiser. The sale of the paintings and donations collected at the Kids’ Art for KidStart event has raised $300.00 so far! The paintings will be on sale at Mudsharks for the month of September with all proceeds to KidStart.
