This year the art show includes a “Future Darien Artists Show” for kids under 18 to display artwork they’ve made. “Each participant will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a free class at the DAC in thier respective age group,” according to the website, which has more details.

Visit the art show’s website for more information about the event. But don’t just visit it for that reason. A group of artists have gotten together and contributed designs that show off their talent — so go see a website that just looks beautiful.
