The Northville Art House will present the 4th annual Young Artist Juried Art Fair showcasing young artists in grades 2 through 12 in March. More than 30 young entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to show their creativity and sell original art while learning about self-promotion and understanding art as a business.
The Northville Art House has teamed up with the First Presbyterian Church of Northville and event sponsor, Community Financial, to provide the young entrepreneurs a space to show off their talents and artwork that includes acrylic, water-color, illustrations, jewelry, mixed media, fiber art, photography and much more.
The art fair is planned from 10:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. March 14 at First Presbyterian Church of Northville, 200 East Main St. Beginning the event will be a performance by the Northville Strings
Youth Orchestra, a group of students ranging in age from 7 to 18 who play the violin, viola and cello. Entrance is a $3 donation at the door for those ages 13 and older. Children 12 and younger will be admitted at no cost.
New this year, the fair will also showcase art from more than 300 young artists who have participated in Northville Art House Young Artist Outreach Program led by Instructors Maria Latour, Sasha Roberts-Levi and Donna Gonzalez.
The exhibition features the creativity of pre-school students at Goddard School of Novi and First Presbyterian Church of Northville, kindergarten and first graders at Thornton Creek Elementary, and Amerman Elementary, along with students in Hillside Middle School Peer Links.
There will be free activities for those 12 and younger including card making by Margene from Stampeddler Plus of Northville and STEM activities from STEMville of Northville.
Artists of all ages are invited to enter the Community Flag Contest where sub- mitted artwork will be incorporated into a community flag installed at the Northville Art House. Prizes will be awarded.
