070513 The Arts Collaborative's Mural: Public Participation Invited (238)

MEREDITH — The Arts Collaborative's Teaching Studio in Meredith (www.theartscollaborative.net) welcomes all ages to register for "Mural Madness!" painting workshops taking place July 10, 11, and 12. Participants may attend one, two, or all three mural-making sessions from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at 5 Winona Road facilitated by artist Cynthia Robinson.
Robinson, who has led community mural projects locally and throughout the region, says  "The Arts Collaborative opened just one year ago. Our idea is to celebrate this first anniversary by inviting everyone to make art collaboratively, to create an outside mural that will be here for all of us for years to come."
Robinson and fellow teaching artist Heidi Little emphasize that no art experience is needed. Both have extensive experience teaching and facilitating.
In order to actively reach out to the community for input on the mural design, the Arts Collaborative Teaching Studio is providing a blank template/ coloring page for creative enthusiasts (of all ages and abilities) to sketch out some ideas that might be incorporated in to the final design plan. "All are welcome to participate, whether you are able to attend the workshop days or not. You can stop by at The Arts Collaborative at 5 Winona Road in Meredith to pick one up, or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

For "Mural Madness!" pre-registration is required. Each two-hour session is $20 with discounts offered for groups or multi-session purchases.
