EARTH MOVEMENT kids art show brought to you by Jeremy, Super Cooper and Keiko
EARTH MOVEMENT opened in San Francisco on Saturday with a fun reception, affordable art and positive vibes. Many of our emerging artists came through for the event, and several made the first sales of their budding careers! With this post, I hope to capture some of the show’s energy for folks who couldn’t be there.

Oof! The dog ate my artwork!
The energy was wonderful! I would love to know how you did the raffles. I have a gallery to share students work at the end of each class… 8 weeks. Need some ideas to liven up the event and keep the parents and family visiting. Although the art is quite lively I think a raffle will add new life!
Thanks for sharing! Post-it door also awesome idea! Thanks again!
