In cooperation with Aspen Grove Mall, the Rox Arts Council is hosting the banner project for the 9th time this year. The project gives kids the opportunity to have their artwork printed on a banner which then are hung throughout the mall.
Members of the Rox Arts Council volunteer their time to work with the kids, take pictures of the artwork, do the graphics design, printing, cutting and sewing of the banners. The funds for the printing materials come from the SCFD grant the council applied for. We thank our members Karen Kennedy, Priscilla Wohl, Patricia Jenkins, Marylou Steenrod, Tony Lazzari, Jan Berger, Tom Cooper, and Beth Lancaster for the effort on this year’s banners.
The theme of this years project is birds – keep an eye out for the new banners at the mall around May 4th!
Community Service Mentoring
Four students from Thunderidge High School and Dakota Ridge High School fulfilled their community service hours under the mentor-ship of the Roxborough Arts Council. Together, they created 60 handmade greeting cards that were sent out to two organizations: Girls Love Mail and Packages From Home. Two of the students fulfilled their International Baccalaureate Community Service Project by providing 3 hands on art lessons for students at Roxborough Intermediate School.
