"In the background there's going to be the moon, Pluto, and all the planets and an Astronaut right in the middle," says 9 year old Olivia Walton

"Trucks and like big sky scrapers," says 7 year old Tanner Schuster.

"Come up with ideas and we set a date and and our neighbors come over and we do it together," Says 9 year old Madilynn Carr.

"I don't know why I want it up there, just for fun maybe. People to look at it," says 10 year old Peyton Schuster

All art work must be turned in on a 12 by 12 canvas to the Richland Public Library by August 15th.

It will be on display for the month of September.
