Joyce Hunt, owner of Mitchie's Fine Black Art and Gift Gallery, believes firmly that kids deserve a break when they want to have a little fun. That's why Mitchie's has a never-ending schedule of seasonal arts & crafts activities as well as weekly book readings just for the little ones. To participate, all your kid has to do is show up. During summer and winter school holidays, kids enjoy bimonthly art programs. Also, during Spring Break and Mother's and Father's days, Mitchie's brings out the glue and construction paper so kids can make a personal card for their loved ones. Volunteers read books every Saturday to the enthusiastic group. Afterward, these kids get a free snack and present as well as a discount on any book they buy. Not a bad break from Saturday morning cartoons.
