CALEXICO — About 20 local kids took part in an eight-week art class that provided participants with a lesson in Calexico history and architecture as well.

The art classes wrapped up last week and culminated in an exhibit at the Carmen Durazo Cultural Arts Center of the participants’ renditions of the eight historical buildings chosen to be highlighted.
