Artist Sarah Bruns: “I am a senior at Carmel High School.  I enjoy creating art because I like the fact that I can create things that people will enjoy looking at.  I have not real preference to media, but I’m best at jewelry and drawing.”

Sarah will be attending Indiana University at Bloomington in the fall.  While there she plans to major in Pre-Med with a minor in Art.  This is not the first time that Sarah has had her art on exhibit in the World’s Smallest Children’s Art Gallery.

While she was in elementary school at Mohawk Trails Sarah’s art was chosen for the school’s exhibit. Today Sarah is a very busy senior at Carmel High School.  In addition to her Art classes, she is a hurdler for the Carmel High School Track team.

The Carmel Arts Council is very pleased that Sarah wanted to display her Art in our gallery for the month of March.  She is a member of the Carmel Arts Council’s High School Division.

About Carmel Arts Council: It is the mission of the Carmel Arts Council to encourage and promote the arts for all ages through leadership, financial, and volunteer support in order to nourish a vibrant culture in the Carmel Community.

The World’s Smallest Children’s Art Gallery: Artwork by kindergarten through 5th grade students is exhibited September through May, with each elementary school scheduled for a month. Summer months are filled with special events and exhibits.

Young Performers Scholarships: The CAC has awarded more than $59,000 in scholarships since 1998 to graduating high school students from Carmel’s area public and private high schools, provided the respective parents pay Carmel property taxes. Students compete in visual arts, literary arts, piano and instrumental arts, and performance arts.  Participants will also appear as part of the Young Performers Showcase that takes place at various locations across Carmel.

Holiday on the Square: The CAC in conjunction with the City of Carmel assists with this annual event on the Saturday before Thanksgiving at the Gazebo. Council members volunteer to assist Santa, and distribute more than 400 goody bags to children.
