I have to give a huge shout out to the Art in the Park program!
The Sheboygan Visual Artists have created a program where artists make a small 8x10 piece of original artwork, The Small Works Project, and they sell paintings for $25 each. The proceeds go toward Art in the Parks. A program in which, for a few Saturdays this summer, artists come to a different park in Sheboygan and do a project free of charge with families. Luckily I've been able to attend 2 of these weekends. I'm so glad that I've been able to take advantage of such a wonderful service that is trying to spread creativity & the arts in our community.
Sadly, Frank one of the artists said he was unsure of the continuation of the program for next year. I know the SVA has worked very hard on this and really put a great amount of time & money behind the project. It saddens me. I wish every community would start doing more to incorporate the arts into our everyday lives. I think we all need a little art in our lives in this time, and in the future.
What a wonderful thing to have in our communities!
Art for all ages!!!
Do you have a great community program?
