Small children creating art

It’s a collaboration.

Discover Dixon, in collaboration with The Next Picture Show (TNPS), is excited to announce a unique opportunity for young artists in the community. This program is a fundraising event that will help beautify the downtown district while providing exposure to local businesses, families, and organizations.

Drop into TNPS with the kids either March 18 or 25.

TNPS is hosting two sessions for students from K through 12th grade to come and design their masterpieces–March 18 OR March 25. Feel free to drop-in either day between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. We close up at 4 p.m., so drop in at least an hour before then. TNPS supplies all art materials. Students may submit more than one entry.

THEME | “Draw what Dixon means to you”

Discover Dixon and TNPS are encouraging all students interested in participating to submit their artwork by April 5. The artwork needs to reflect any aspect of Dixon that the student enjoys. All submissions must be turned in to TNPS at 113 W. 1st Street.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity to young artists in our community,” said Matthew Lenox, Marketing Director for Discover Dixon. “It’s a chance for them to showcase their talents while supporting a great cause.”
