The Bakehouse Art Complex was bursting at the seams with energy and excitement during the monthly 2nd Friday open studio party -- and for good reason. BAC played host to the Miami-Dade County Public Schools' Annual Countywide Student Art Show and it is fair to say that these "youngin's" are capable of much more than just coloring within the lines.
The show features the works of the crème de la crème of Miami-Dade after being jury-selected amongst thousands of submissions. The purpose of the show is to allow art educators and their students to present their works in a gallery setting. We were big fans of fostering the arts as a profession at such a young age! That said, one of the artists, who is currently in 7th grade, disclosed to me that he wants to be a scientist and keep art as a hobby. It's ok, he still has time and talent on his side.
