In cooperation with Aspen Grove Mall, the Rox Arts Council is hosts an annual banner project. 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. Funds for printing and materials through an SCFD grant.
New banners are hung at the mall each year in May!
The Love Letter Project
Each year ROX Arts Council works with Aspen Grove to sponsor a Love Letter Project ,providing supplies and inspiration for visitors to create cards expressing their love. In 2021 we asked people to help us share love and support for our local heroes at Littleton Adventist Hospital who worked so hard caring for our local community.
Aspen Grove added a special Valentine’s Day treat and and delivered them to heroes working in the ER and Pediatric departments. What a wonderful way to show that our community is thankful for their hard work during these extraordinary times.
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.
