St. Michaels Community Center hosted “Paint Out” in Muskrat Park on Tuesday, July 17th where over 100 kids got to experience different art mediums all for FREE. There were tables for sand art, tissue paper crafts, basket making with local weaver Heidi Wetzel and Sensory Art with Blair Selby from St. Luke’s School, just to name a few. A painting contest was held, and the judges had a difficult time picking winners due to the amazing talent of our young artists. Even sidewalk chalk was provided for the ones too young to participate in the other activities.
Co-chairs of this event for SMCC, April Adams and Marianne Jackson, were “thankful for all the volunteers that came out to help on a very hot and humid day. But the kids didn’t seem to notice.” This was the first year that SMCC was host of this event and they can’t wait for next year. “Next year will be even better!” stated Jackson.
