JACKSON, Tenn.- A local agency that helps parents and families in need holds a children's art auction, Thursday.

The "Self Portraits of Youth" at the Dream Center held a come-and-go art auction by the children of the center.

Leaders said the children are learning important life lessons and more importantly are learning by doing.

"It gives a sense of normalcy. All kids do things in the summer when they are off of school, out of school on summer break and I think it's just something that is necessary for kids," said Gail Gustafson of The
Dream Center.

The center will use the money toward activities for the kids during the upcoming summer months.
