History of Young in Art
Frame-n-Art started hosting the “Young in Art” Show in 1997 with our first school, Corrales Elementary. When we found out the local elementary only had art every other year we saw an opportunity to bring something special to the community and encourage young artists every year. The “Young in Art” show expanded to four different schools in the past few years with more wanting to have their own show. These art shows take a considerable amount of time, effort, energy and resources to organize and host. Frame-n-Art is just a small family business and we don’t have the resources to take on any more. For each school we host an awards reception. We would love to showcase all the great art that the children create, however in our place of business that just isn’t possible. We select only a few pieces of art from each grade level. Then we ask several local artists to come in and jury the children’s artwork. The night of the reception when we present the awards we always have a full house. In our space that means that between seventy-five to over one hundred people. Besides the kids, we have teachers, parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles, neighbors, the local artist judges, members of the Kiwanis Club of Corrales along with other community members attending. Let’s not forget the local dignitaries that help us present the awards during the event; the Mayor of Corrales in years past & last year the Fire Chief of Corrales.
