2016 Project Updates
From the Desk of
I wanted to give an update on our 2016 projects we have planned. We have completed our first project, 2nd Annual Chalk Art during the Anoka RiverFest! It was a great success and we are excited to move forward with other projects.
Unfortunately, I was late in getting details wrapped up before the end of the school year and have had a difficult time reaching student artists. Therefore we do not have enough kids to complete any of the projects at this time. We are waiting for school to be back in session and hope that the school teachers will be able to help drum up excitement and get kids signed up ASAP!
Therefore, the deadlines have been moved to September 10th. As you know...we live in Minnesota and weather is a HUGE factor for our projects. Coming into September, we are running out of nice weather! So we may have a project or two redirected to next spring.
Our main projects we would like to see done are:
Snowplow Shovel Painting (All Ages)
Halloween Wall Contest (High School)
Paper Mache Pumpkins for the Stamp Release (Everyone!)
Other projects that may get done are:
Wall at Aquatic Center (Elementary kids)
Wall by Dam (Middle School)
If you have a neighborhood of kids, have them all sign up together!
Please print off all applications on the website: http://www.AnokaArt.com
go to current projects and pick the projects you would like to participate in. Each application is on the project page.
By August 25th I will have dates for all these projects.
