We are so excited for this first time fundraiser! Our very own intern, Camille, is heading up this new fundraiser for October 2018! “Little Hands, Big Masterpieces” will be a CITY WIDE event open to kids Kindergarten through 5th grade who love ART! In collaboration with the MAC, we will host the gallery from October 22-28, 2018. So be sure to SAVE THE DATE and start brainstorming YOUR ideas! The art can be done in the medium of your choice and the ONLY major rule is that it must have something to do with a part of OR all of S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math). We can’t wait to see what you all create!! We are excited to host this event during October ARTS MONTH in conjunction with Peak Radar!! Be on the look out for more details as we get closer to the event! If you have any questions about this fundraiser, please email littlehandsbigmasterpieces@gmail.com.


If you haven’t heard, we are partnering with Manitou Art Center during PeakRadar.com‘s October Art Month to bring the 1st “Little Hands, Big Masterpieces” art show fundraiser to the springs! Be sure to learn more about the event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/222993925028922/

Right now we have a call for ARTISTS out and would love any and all Kindergarten through 5th graders in the Pikes Peak Region to join us in this event! If you love art, submit a piece of art that is S.T.E.A.M. themed (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) in ANY medium of your choice. This will be an art show that will allow your young one to really experience the process of real art shows. Plus, they have the chance to give back to their community!

There is no entry fee, donation of sales for this fundraiser to the Pikes Peak Children’s Museum is 50% towards the future art exhibit of the Pikes Peak Children’s Museum. 30% to the MAC and 20% back to you, the artist, unless you would like to donate this percentage to PPCM as well.
