EC Gallery Launches Kids Creative Art Painting Contest
for Local Budding Artists

San Diego, Calif. (JULY 8, 2013)—The Exclusive Collections Fine Art Gallery (EC Gallery) proudly invites young artists to its inaugural “Off the Easel” Kids Art Painting Contest, Saturday, August 24 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. am at their Seaport Village gallery.

Young budding artists will be divided into different age categories, and will be judged by four top renowned artists. A winner will be chosen from each registered grade level, and each will receive a professional art kit. In addition, each winner will also get his or her artwork professionally framed by EC Gallery (a value of over $100).

From all the winners of each participating grade levels, one top overall winner will be chosen and receive a $500 gift certificate to fund the aspiring artist’s growth and development in the arts. In addition, the winning painting will be displayed in one of the San Diego EC Galleries for thousands to see as they tour the gallery. Upon the paintings showcase completion, the budding artists will be able to proudly display his or her professionally winning piece at home.

All painting supplies and smocks will be provided and all painting must be done on site.
