At the Children’s Gallery and Arts Center in Homestead, art isn’t just for hanging on the walls.
Amid the paper mache sharks, clay sculptures and bright paintings, the non-profit gallery has launched a new line of clothing and apparel displaying original works by its resident child artists.
The Audacious Sprit line includes colorful t-shirts, leggings, yoga pants, tote bags, and even shower curtains, priced from $20 to $100. The fabric is the type used for high-performance sportswear, so it’s light, soft and comfortable.
The art work is printed entirely on the fabric, so it’s not just an image on the front or back. It’s a concept similar to tie-dye, with crayon marks and brush strokes from the original paintings clearly visible on the fabric.
