To celebrate the annual Week of the Young Child ™, April 10-16, 2021, Edward Street is presenting a young children’s art exhibit entitled “Spring is Bursting Out All Over!” which will be held in the Printer’s Building Hallway Gallery at 50 Portland Street in Worcester. The exhibit is not only an opportunity for the young artists to display their creations but also for the public to discover the developmental stages of young children’s creative expression and how this impacts their artwork.
The artwork will highlight each of the following age groups.
- 0-15 mo.
- 15 mo.- 2.9 yrs.
- 2.9-4 yrs.
- 4-6 yrs.
- 6-8 yrs.
Six area childcare centers submitted over 160 pieces for the exhibit. Participating childcare centers are Webster Square Day Care Center, Rainbow Child Development Center, YWCA of Central MA Inc., Worcester Comprehensive Education and Care Inc., Guild of Saint Agnes, and Children’s Friend Early Learning Center.
Ten pieces, from each age group, will be displayed in the gallery, and all of the artwork can be viewed online at edwardstreet.org.
The gallery will be open from 9 AM – 4 PM, M-F starting April 5th and continue through the month of April. The gallery may be accessed from the 50 Portland Street entryway – press 011 to gain entry.
