The Gallery at the Park is a Tri-cities gem! They are located right by Howard Amon Park on 89 Lee Blvd in Richland and open weekdays 10 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday 1-5 pm.

For as long as I can remember, art has been a part of my life. My mother is passionate about art and continually shared her discovery of new artists with her children. I took art classes, including painting and art history from 7th – 12th grade. My 8th grade art teacher told our class, “Children are natural artists-it’s up to the adults in their life to nurture it.”

Art is a perfect way to give children an opportunity to discover their talents and experience self-expression. That’s why I am excited to share about The Gallery at the Park’s upcoming Children’s Summer Workshops! They have a great lineup for children ages infant up to 15 all summer long! Tuition is $60 for all classes, with the exception of Little Picassos, which is $40.
