The Moses Lake School District held an art show to highlight artwork created by preschoolers from Moses Lake schools. A public reception was held Saturday at the Moses Lake Museum & Art Center.

“There were over 180 people in attendance on Saturday to see their preschoolers’ art,” said MLSD Early Learning Director Lynn Frey.

Each of the district’s 20 preschool classes created unique art pieces using varying materials and formats with a theme of “KINDNESS MATTERS!” Frey said the support of the community was appreciated, as was the hard work of teachers, parents, students and staff at the Moses Lake Museum and Art Center.

Frey said she encourages the community to come out and support young MLSD artists by visiting the art show at 401 S. Balsam St. in Moses Lake. The show runs through March 18.

She also said she enjoyed seeing the community turn out on Saturday to support the arts.

It was absolutely beautiful seeing all the families, relatives and friends come out and enjoy the museum and celebrate the students’ creativity,” Frey said.

Displays included explanations of how the young artists created their work such as the one shown in the photo above. Rainbow string art projects were made using a roller to make a sky backdrop after which strings dipped in paint were drug across the canvas to create a rainbow effect.
