On May 12, Main Street Arts hosted an open house for the 5th Annual Finger Lakes Student Painting Exhibition—a unique painting exhibition open to students in grades 6-12 residing in Ontario, Wayne, Monroe, Livingston, Seneca, and Yates Counties.
Over 350 students from 11 area school districts participated in the exhibition this year making it our biggest year yet! Each student received a 5" x 7" stretched canvas with an assigned color and used it to make a painting of an object or scene that is predominately that color.
