We are thrilled to have award winning children's book author, Cathey Graham Nickell joining us for the Scenic City Art Car Weekend April 28-30. Cathey's book is called, "Arthur Zarr’s Amazing Art Car". The artist who illustrated the book, Bill Megenhardt, will also be in town for art car weekend. Cathey has an amazing presentation where she reads the book and talks about how and why she became a writer. Cathey and Bill have done this presentations for over twenty schools in Texas and the children absolutely love it. Bill closes the presentation with a live illustration where the students call out what they think the image should be and what elements should be included. After the presentation, students come outside to meet an art car artist and see a real art car up close. The school receives the illustration as a special gift.
We can only extend this opportunity to one school on Friday, April 28th and you can help. Every $5 donation made to Art 120 between now and April 24th will count as a vote toward a school receiving this visit. The school with the most votes by 12:01am on April 25th will receive this wonderful opportunity for their children to enjoy. All proceeds will benefit the ArtCarAVan. Don't wait, click here to vote today!
