Artist Statement

More than just Scribbles is a vibrant collection of art by the children of the ASI Children’s Center who are as young as 6 months through Kindergarten. The exhibit showcases the beauty and complexity of young children’s work. Go beyond the scribbles and explore how each mark, splatter of paint, and non-discriminate shape represent significant learning, growth, and culture. Photos and descriptions capture the enthusiasm of the creative process and allow viewers to gain a deeper understanding of the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development that occurs when children are engaged in creating art. The collection features collaborative pieces in a variety of media inspired by the children’s interests and experiences. Find inspiration in the beauty, diversity, and awe captured by these budding young artist as you see the world through their eyes.

We will be celebrating with an opening reception on Thursday, September 5 from 6:00­–8:00 pm. Gallery patrons can find kid-friendly appetizers and refreshments throughout the evening. We will also have an art activity room down the hall in the Forest Suite where children can participate in several art activities.
