I don’t know what you were doing at 8 years of age; I know I was watching Beetlejuice reruns and picking my nose. I certainly wasn’t filling a sketchbook with other-worldy and unique characters like 11 year old Bowmanville artist Aiden Beatty. And at 16, I spent a lot of time being angry, while Whitby artist Zi Chen of Henry Street H.S. spends her time painting, drawing portraits, and thinking of where she will go for post-secondary. OshawaSpaceInvader organizer Steven Frank speaks with both these young artists – who will be vendors at the OshawaSpaceInvaders on Fri. Sept. 19th - at Clarington’s Picasso Picnic, check out the video by Imperial Arts' Ray McNeil. This great youth art and music fair is an annual event at the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington.
