Such imitation is in the tradition of aspiring artists of the 19th century, who copied great works of art to improve their own technique. The contest is ongoing on Thursdays through Saturdays from June 12 until August 1. All materials are provided. The art is judged in two categories, ages 5 – 8 and 9 – 12. Awards will be presented around 8:00 p.m. at the reception at Mint Hill Arts on August 2. For detailed information, stop by or call the gallery (980-226-5532).
