Young artists (18 and under) can register through July 30 to sell their creations at the Young Artists’ Market tent, presented by the Bonifas Arts Center, during the Waterfront Art Festival.
“Kids get the pleasure of making their artwork and then displaying it, seeing the joy it brings to the person buying it,” and gain business skills, said Sandy Wilson, East Ludington Gallery co-op president.
In past years, young artists—whose quality, innovative, and diverse work always amazes—have sold jewelry, paintings, magnets, nightlights, and wooden toys, said Corinne Haberstich, Bonifas education coordinator.
They will sell their work Aug. 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Ludington Park near the Karas Memorial Bandshell.
An application and sample creation must be submitted, with a $5 registration fee, to the Bonifas by 3 p.m. July 30. Download an application, call 906-786-3833, or stop by the Bonifas.
