21. Local Art Gallery

Do you belong to a children play group, children’s art group, or preschool? Consider having an art show at a nearby coffeeshop, bakery, college or ice cream shop for a period.

When you strategy the owner/manager with your thought, make certain to mention that you can have a low-essential reception for the young artists and their households. This translates to lots of folks purchasing their muffins or ice cream cones! And the kids’ households will most likely continue to stop by all through the month to see their art on show and share it with their pals and neighbors.
