CORNWALL, Ont. – Budding young artists will be displaying their mini-masterpieces during a special outdoor event next month.

Fabienne Lafrance and her teacher Hye Kung at the fifth annual kids' art exhibition in Cornwall on Sunday, June 14, 2015.

For the sixth year, a South Korean painter who made a home in Cornwall is sharing the artwork of her students at an exhibition tent on her front yard.

"I'm so proud of my students, this is their day to show off their talent to parents and the community," said Hye Kung, who graduated with honours from a four-year fine arts program at Wonkwang University.

The private children's art class she runs out of her home studio is hosting its annual Kids' Art Exhibition at 1413 Holy Cross Boulevard on Sunday, June 19. The free event runs from 10 a.m. to noon.

"It's very important to help promote the arts," said Kung.

Kung, a familiar face at Our Beautiful Obsession (OBO) Studios, is an artist who paints with watercolours and acrylic and is fascinated with exploring country landscapes, birds, and wildlife.

From September to June, her group of 30 aspiring artists ages nine to 15 have been learning techniques like shading and mixing, to help create their own breathtaking images for the event.

Kung's artwork has been seen in juried art exhibitions and festivals locally as well as Ottawa and Kingston.
