The 18th Annual Childrens Art Walk,
May 4th, 2018

Whatcom County students can proudly display their works of art at Allied Arts’ annual Children’s Art Walk. Each first Friday of May, art lovers can stroll through downtown Bellingham and delight in children’s creative expressions displayed in store windows, hear live youth musical performances, and participate in other special offerings. The Allied Arts Gallery exhibit will feature professional work by Allied Arts Teaching Artists in Whatcom County. Art will stay on display throughout the month of May in honor of the state wide Arts Education Month. We invite schools, parents, and local businesses to all get involved in this exciting event to advocate children’s art and creativity.
