“ This is a wonderful program and a great gift to be able to provide to our students! I love the gift of art and even more loved the chance to see the glitter in the children’s eyes as they rounded the tables and found their masterpiece. I get goose bumps and tears in my eyes when I think of the joy that this night brought to a lot of children. They each felt so special and continue to talk of the show and the art they made.”
-Heather Hall, Art Teacher, North Hancock Elementary
“The students had a great time making the art and it was a wonderful and easy experience. Kids Art Fairs really is a great for all art educators not only in the help it provides for art enrichment, but for the art appreciation it has instilled in my students. Watching their eyes light up when they saw their art framed was reward enough for me. This is a great way to get parents, educators and the community involved in the arts. Thanks again for everything!”
-Trina Kinhalt, Art Teacher, North Adams Elementary School
“We are so excited that we did so well! We loved working with you all!!! It’s a fabulous company and we can’t wait till our event next year! Thank You!”

“Our KidsArt Fair art show was a big success! The artwork was displayed professionally, and the staff was very efficient and great to work with.”
-Paula Landry, Art Specialist, Eastvalley Elementary School
"The KidsArt Fair that we held last week was a fantastic experience! The organizational part of it for me as the art teacher was easy.
- The event itself brought awareness of our art program to the school community.
- Parents were extremely impressed and had a favorable reaction to the sale of their child's framed artwork.
- The school board was very pleased with the sense of community that this event brought to the school.
- Most importantly, the students were so proud of themselves!
Thank you for bringing this activity to us. We can't wait for next year!"
- Kathleen Welch, Art teacher, Pope John Paul II School
"So, we expected the parents and students to be proud of their artwork, as it was presented so beautifully, but what we were really thrilled about was the look on the faces of our school staff! Each individual that walked into our KidsArt Fair was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the frames, the presentation of artwork done by our young artists, and even the kind KidsArt Fair staff members that supported the event. Every person that purchased mentioned that they were going to hang the framed art prominently in their homes. Yes, it was a great fundraising opportunity for our school, but it really made our school look good!
We have already scheduled another KidsArt Fair event!Thanks again!"
-Donna Lennon, Library/Research Teacher, The Duke Ellington School/PS 4
“The Kids Art Fairs event demonstrated the power of art in the development of my students, both academically and emotionally. Students invested a tremendous amount of effort in creating something that was a little extra special for one night.
As the students walked into the fair, I was overwhelmed at their amazed faces and joyful smiles as they found their artwork. Kids Art Fairs is a wonderful opportunity for students to shine as artists. With the amazing assistance from the company representatives and flawless organization, the event was a complete success.”
-Joanna Angelopoulos, Visual Arts Teacher, Gray M. Sanborn School
"I was just taken back at how beautifully everything was displayed. It is wonderful for parents to them to walk out with their children's artwork. I have not heard anything other than: This is phenomenal tonight. I think it’s positive, positive message to the parents."
- Brian Wheeler, Teacher, Fifth Grade Gifted Class, Cypress Creek Elementary School
“I am an art teacher (and a mom) and we scheduled the KidsArt Fair for a variety of reasons.
- First, there is no obligation to buy.
- The company gave us very high quality art paper for the entire school.
- They also provide everything needed to make the art fair happen.
- I have done art shows in the past that required 120 or more hours to set up.
- They came in and helped me and a few volunteer moms. It took about two hours at most.
- We were able to showcase all the art work for families that planned to come to the show.
If you choose to buy you will be paying for the frame, mat and convenience, not your sons or daughters art work. Your school will make certain that art work is returned to each child. For every frame purchased, we earned $6. The rest of the price of the frame pays for the art paper, materials, staffing the event and the frame.
My principal and PTO were impressed with the quality of the paper, frame and marketing materials. The cost of all of this is near $2,000+ and there was no charge to our school.
Parents and grandparents asked if we would have the show again next year. The faces of our students were our best reward. The benefits to their sense of self were immeasurable!
I do have to say I work hard all year and the show gives me a chance to share with families what we do in the art room. Ours was very successful.”
- Anonymous Art Teacher
“We just had our first KidsArt Fair this past weekend and we are still hearing rave reviews from parents about the beautiful artwork and how professionally it was displayed. The look of pride on the children’s faces and the surprised look of awe on the parent’s faces when they first took a glimpse of their children’s artwork is priceless and made for some very wonderful childhood memories for so many involved.
The process of contacting and receiving materials was flawless and effortless. Regular communication with the parent company was very reassuring. Kid’s Art Fairs were very professional yet personable to work with. I was extremely pleased with the representative who came to assist us with the actual event. She made us feel at ease and made an otherwise daunting task seem effortless. We can’t wait to have our next KidsArt Fair next year. In fact, we already have our date booked for the same time on next year’s calendar.
For anyone this is looking for that extra something to help strengthen your program and showcase the wonderful creativity of your student’s, KidsArt Fairs is the group to help you do just that. I give KidsArt Fair an A+ and highly recommend them to schools across the country.”
-Todd Woodward, Art Instructor, Highland Elementary
“Our KidsArt Fair was an overwhelming success in so many areas. All of the students were able to create an exquisite piece of art that was enhanced by the beautiful framing. The parents were so impressed by how talented our students are and how beautiful the gallery setting was. Kids were thrilled to have their artwork displayed in an actual “gallery.” And as the art teacher, I was most happy with… everything! The whole process was so well-organized and planned.”
- Leih Cooper, Art Teacher, Desert Willow Elementary
"I held my first KidsArt Fair last spring and it was easier than I could have imagined. I honestly could not have fathomed framing 300 or more artworks in the 2 hours before the show. I scheduled friends and family to come to school and help just to be sure we were ready when the doors opened. I had 5 sixth grade girls that were not only honored, but more than happy to help. As it was that is all the help we needed.
Our tables and KidsArt Fairs' display racks were in place in just 10 minutes and we all got to work framing. In 30 minutes, we had framed and set up well over 100 artworks and at this point with 150 to go and over an hour left, I breathed a sigh of relief. I was amazed at how quickly and easily the gallery was going up! We were more than ready 20 minutes before the event started KidsArt Fairs and my Art Fair Coordinator made it all possible working with just me and a few student volunteers! To top it all off, parents and staff had rave reviews for the event, students had the chance to show off their creativity and we made some money for the art program, too!
One of the best things about this event is that it doesn't mean adding much at all to your workload. If you are planning a KidsArt Fair....know from my experience that it is both easy and fun. We are looking forward to using their services again next spring!"
- Shannon Stewart, Stetson Hills Elementary
“The set up and take down went very smoothly. All parents and staff were very impressed. This event is a real attention-getter and came at a time when support for the Arts was needed greatly…great memories that were created.”
- Lora Barnhiser, Art Teacher, Estrella Mountain Elementary
“…..how happy we were with our event last week! It was really great to watch the kids' and parents' faces as they found their beautifully-framed piece - lots of smiles and photo opportunities! The set up went smoothly thanks to our volunteers and the woman guiding us along from your company. All in all it was a great success ….. esteem-boosting for our student and a lovely evening for our parents. Thanks so much”
-Karen Binkow, Robyn Williams, and Homeira Shojaee, Art Explorers Teachers, Sherman Oaks Elementary
“The Art Fair was wonderful! It was so much fun to see so many of the art pieces in frames, the frames really helped celebrate the kids artwork! I was very happy with the event and your frames. I think the price is good (considering it cost me around $70 to have one of similar size framed elsewhere). The Art Show was really a good way for all of us to celebrate art with our students and their families…. Thanks so much!”

"...There is nothing like sharing creativity! We do not have an art teacher in our school so it was quite impressive to see how teachers and students used the theme of the night to really get creative! Working with KidsArt Fairs was simple and enjoyable! They really take the stress out of it all so that everyone can just enjoy the evening!"
- Jodi Zaparaskas, Assistant Principal, Our Lady of Angels Elementary School

- David butler, Principal, Cypress Creek Elementary School
"My experience with the KidsArt Fair held at my school was one filled with excitement, serenity, and wonderful faculty involvement with the students and the community. The students proudly displayed their artwork by the professional display. I believe that lifelong memories were created by this experience for both the students and their parents. I personally would encourage other principals to try this event to promote interaction between the school and the community. My thanks go to the KidsArt Fairs organization and their wonderful initiative making the students' art skills become a reality."
- Sr. Gloriamary Agumagu, Principal, St. Fortunata School
“I was incredibly happy with the way things went with the KidsArt Fair at St. Ann School. Everyone who came was very complimentary. After the art show I put on last year, I vowed that I would find a way to present something more polished and professional looking for this year and with KidsArt Fairs I was able to do that. I loved seeing the kids react to seeing their artwork in frames. I believe we will use your company again for our art fair next year. Thank you."
- Elizabeth James, Art Teacher, St. Ann School
“What a wonderful experience our school had with KidsArt Fairs! It exceeded any and all of our expectations. We were a little hesitant to add a new activity to our busy schedule; however, once the staff and the parent volunteers got into it, they loved the project. We will definitely sign-up for next year.”

“On behalf of everyone at Peninsula Montessori I want to let you know what a huge success our show was. Everything was so well organized and well thought out - it was so easy! From the initial delivery of the art paper, to the back-up information provided, to the marketing collateral, the delivery of the frames and the display stands - it all went like clockwork.
It was a great thing for the children to see their art displayed and a great community building exercise for the school. Our art show 'gallery reception' in the evening was attended by over 100 people and was enjoyed by all - we had a blast!
Your incredibly efficient delivery people came the following morning and took everything away - it couldn't have gone more smoothly.
Sign us up for next year - we will definitely do it again.”
- Gaye Vancans, PTO Parent, Peninsula Montessori
"It was less expensive to have it framed here and more convenient."
- Susan Green, Parent, Cypress Creek Elementary School
"We appreciate Kids Art Fair for making the event possible.
- The students and their families were so proud and they all had a great time!
- Our school made over $1400 from the sales of the art. In one night, we made double what our school’s annual budget for school supplies is for an entire year!
- What a difference for our art program!
What a difference for the art education and the lives of our kids!"
- Jon Barber, Parent Volunteer, Richmond Street School
"My daughter Sunny made the crab using her hand prints. It is in a KidsArt Fairs frame and she asks me to take it down from the wall ALL the time and even sits on the couch watching TV with her picture in her lap!"
