The children from Wednesday's Art for Kids at the Treasure Trove are so excited. Their artwork is on display through the month of March at Kohnen's Country Bakery, 125 W. Tehachapi Blvd. Ste. D.

Participating in the exhibit is James Mangelsdorf, age 7, Phillip Mangelsdorf, age 12, Bentley Hecht, age 7 and Daniel Palmquist, age 7.

The boys have been learning acrylic painting and drawing. At Phillip's request they are working on perspective. Phillip said he wanted to learn perspective because he is creating a board game. James asked to learn how to draw a toucan, Bentley wanted to know how to draw snakes and Daniel was interested in painting a tiger head. Instructor Judith Campanaro has incorporated their requests into the lessons to keep the boys learning and the interest high. Campanaro says she is very proud of the work they have done and continue to do.

One young man attending the class for the first time announced that he was only visiting and wouldn't be back. At the end of the session he said "I'll come here again. I always thought I couldn't do art but this looks really good." Bentley responded and said, "Well it helps if you have a good teacher!"

The children's art class is every Wednesday from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at the Treasure Trove, 116 E. Tehachapi Blvd.
