Last year we attended Stagecoach Days for the first time, and were all set this year to take advantage of everything we missed the year before.

Until I developed a sinus-related migraine and ruined it.

We still went much later in the day on Saturday, but by then a majority of the fun activities were over.

The saving grace was that both girls were still able to paint at the “Kids Can Be Artists Too!” booth, kindly put on by the Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community.

So with a smock, paint, a bucket of water, a couple brushes, and a canvas, both my girls started their masterpieces.

The next day, the submitted pieces were judged and the Best in Show in the different age categories won some very nice art supply prizes.

Neither of the girls won, but they still got to have their art displayed at the local Hallberg Center for the Arts during their Kids Can Be Artists Too! gallery showing from September 22 – October 15, 2016.

We didn’t make opening night, but on October 8th we went to see their work on display.

And it was pretty cool.

I’m very thankful that we live in such a fun community that allows kids the opportunity to see just how awesome art is firsthand.

If you’re interested in keeping up on what’s new in the Wyoming Area Creative Arts Community, check out their website for gallery exhibit information, paint night events, and much more.

While you’re there (at the Hallberg Center for the Arts), don’t forget to pose for a picture outside by the piano – which will be on display until it literally falls apart.

Until next time, stay colorful.
