Early Childhood Center holds first art show


Some of the artwork done by Early Childhood Center students is on display at gallery (401). /Nicole KatzmanPROVIDENCE – A collection of works by some of our community’s youngest artists – children ages 3, 4 and 5 who attend the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island’s Early Childhood Center is on display at gallery (401) at the Alliance. The show opened with a reception on Thursday, May 30 and closed June 5.

Artist and teacher Laura Mernoff began working with the children in September 2012 to develop a multimedia presentation, which incorporates works made of canvas, wood and clay. Art classes at the ECC are held for an hour each afternoon.

The large canvasses are for sale, though individual pieces are not. Another show is already planned for next spring.
