The minds might have been young, but Carilli thinks the children received valuable guidance from the older, more experienced artists. "I think it helped them see that art is something you can do your whole life, and you can enjoy being creative your whole life and then share it with other people," she notes. See the results of this artistic collaboration -- pieces that range from paintings to sculptures and collage -- at an opening reception from 6 to 10 p.m. tonight at NEXT, 3659 Navajo Street.
