FROM READERS: Columbia children's artwork at Second Saturday for Kids

Tuesday, March 13, 2012 | 12:00 p.m. CDT; updated 12:30 p.m. CDT, Tuesday, March 13, 2012
Maleah Gagliardi, 8, created the Super Dog whose name is Rex. He has a rainbow power, lightening power and water power.

Columbia children and parents participated in the craft event Second Saturday for Kids on March 10 at Orr Street Studios. Don Baik, a Missourian Community Outreach Team member, went to the event and photographed the artwork created there. He also heard some of the stories behind the canvases from the artists themselves.

This story is part of a section of the Missourian called From Readers, which is dedicated to your voices and your stories. We hope you'll consider sharing. Here's how.


Ella Boyt, 10, drew the Eiffel Tower. Her dream is to go to Paris and see the Eiffel Tower.
