Calling all young artists for Wade Park art show and sale

If you are an artist in kindergarten through high school, a new young artists' art fair and sale wants you.

An art and craft show and sale featuring kid art will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, at Wade Creek Park on Seventh Avenue and Wade Street, next to the Estacada Public Library.

This is a new initiative from the Estacada Parks and Recreation Commission.

“Kids and young adults, it's your time to shine and show your talent at the Art in the Park for Kids,” said Shirley Burke, member of the parks commission. “Young artists come and show what you can do. Design it, make it, sell it and make money.”

There will be no cost to set up a booth, but young artists must be responsible business people. Organizers require that the art be made by kids, with no adult help. Artists have to live in the Estacada School District to be eligible for the sale.

Kids have to sell their wares at a table and it must be priced and organized before arriving at the park.

A parent or another adult must be with the artist the whole day if the child is in kindergarten through sixth grade. Children can share a table, and if artists share a table then only one parent or other adult needs to be at the table.

Young art sellers need to bring money to make change. Be sure the money is in an envelope, cash box or other suitable container.

Students must bring their own table. The parent or adult with you can help the artist put it up and take it down. Don’t forget to bring chairs. Artists will have to clean up after themselves, leaving no debris behind.

Also, art sellers need to bring water, lunch, snack, and anything else to drink or eat.

More information will be coming as the September show gets closer. Watch for a notice in the newspaper, on the city website, at school and at the library.
