If viewers write about art, their understanding deepens. The Young Collectors Club of Bright Hill provides young people with the opportunity to own original art and perhaps begin a life of collecting. Each student will be provided with a workshop kit consisting of a collection of miniature prints by artists who have shown at Bright Hill’s Word & Image Gallery, along with a large shadowbox frame and adhesive dots, their first “art collection.”
