Great Italian Street Painting Festival in North Conway October 10 & 11

Nancy Russo sends us this: Nancy Russo is announcing the birth of a new  nonprofit called THE ARTERY CULTURAL ART CENTER.  The center will be in the location of the Artery Ceramic and Craft Studio, located at 1675 White Mountain Highway in the Warehouse Outlet Plaza, next to Friendly's in North Conway, NH.

The purpose of this Center is to provide underpriveleged children, at risk children, seniors, children and adults with special needs the opportunity to come to the Center and participate in workshops of all mediums.  This community-based organization will need to raise money for supplies and teachers.  If anyone is interested in participating, holding a workshop or donating, please contact Nancy Russo with your special talent.

We are going to kick off the announcement with a GREAT ITALIAN STREET PAINTING FESTIVAL that will take place on October 10th and 11th from 8 AM to 7 PM. Artists of all ages are welcome. Artists will get on their hands and knees and create their works of art while festival goers watch in amazement! Chalk will be provided and you will be asigned a square to design and paint. This is a family-oriented festival so only appropriate designs will be accepted. You can purchase your own square if you are an artist, or you can sponsor a student artist. Parents—you can sponsor your own child and purchase a 2' x 2' square for them to design and paint with chalk.  Children who want to paint can come to the Artery to design their creation on paper before the festival at no charge. This is a great activity for children to get together and learn the meaning of community participation while creating their own art.  ALL CAMERAS WELCOME!
