On Friday, I had a shift at the Renton Municipal Arts Association booth. We had a table where children each decorated a mask to take home. There was also a tic-tac-toe bag toss game for prizes which my grandson Cole helped run. And registered visitors were entered into a raffle for theatre tickets and to other performance events.
Allied Arts of Renton held their annual Chalk Art Contest on Saturday the 28th of August. There were plenty of colorful hands full of chalk dust, happy smiles and a flurry of creative drawings on the tennis court! The artistry was quite amazing, and like ice sculpture, sadly doomed to be temporary. Prizes were awarded for the different age groups and for the professional contenders as well. I am including a few photos and will I get the information about the prize winners here as soon as I have it.
