1 Year Anniversary!

Our Beautiful New Tunnel!

Happy 1st Anniversary 

Young Artists of Anoka!

We are celebrating our 1 year anniversary of Young Artists of Anoka! 

One year ago, we were planning for our first big project, Windows of Time, down in the walking tunnel.  Needless to was a HUGE hit and everyone has loved it!  Residents, City workers, visitors...everyone has commented on how much they love it!

What did we accomplish last year?

Tunnel Before Painting
- Windows of Time Tunnel Project (42 Kids participated)

- Sidewalk Chalk Art during RiverFest (filled almost all spots)

- Halloween 8x8 Art Project (over 50 entries!)

- Halloween Window Decorating at Salon Eleven 

So this year, we have even more great projects in the works!
