‘Keep it Real: LC Youth Festival’
May 13th, 14th and 15th in Lake Country
Open Call to Lake Country Youth
‘Keep it Real: Sidewalk Paint Project’
The Lake Country Art Gallery is looking for youth ages 13 to 18 years of age interested in participating in the ‘Keep it Real: Sidewalk Paint Project’, part of the ‘Keep it Real: LC Youth Festival’.
We are painting the sidewalk in front of George Elliott Secondary School on Bottom Wood Lake Road in Lake Country!
This is an opportunity for youth to work with a professional artist to create an artwork in a public space. Seven emerging and professional artists will provide the mentorship and guidance to our youth: Jody DeSchutter, Lucas Glenn, Mathew Glenn, Kelsie Balehowsky, Arden Boehm, Kaitlin Dutot, and Rachel Mercer. By working together on the ‘Keep it Real: Sidewalk Paint Project’, youth and professional artists can create a cohesive message that is not only a work of art but a reflection of who we are and how we are doing as a community.
Come join us for some painting, tunes, and food!
If you would like to leave your mark on the sidewalk in front of GESS please leave your name and contact information with the Lake Country Art Gallery or email Wanda Lock (curator) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Incognito: using postcards to get teens talking Event Date:Opening night, Friday, May 13th 6-9pm
Location: Pop-Up Gallery located in the Art House (next to the Lake Country Art Gallery)
Contact: Megan Ross, email@example.com
Incognito: using postcards to get teens talking is an exhibition about teens in Lake Country talking about issues that they are experiencing here in the community, whether it’s mental, physical, spiritual, or emotional. We are asking teens, ages 13-18, to anonymously create a postcard that reflects any emotion or thought, funny or serious or anything in between about their personal experiences in Lake Country. This is an opportunity for youth to be heard with- out judgement or criticism and shed some light on how young people are feeling and hopeful- ly start some conversations.
Postcards can be approximately 4x6’’ in size and can be in any medium (drawing, painting, collage, etc.). Drop off boxes will be located at the Lake Country Art Gallery, Boys & Girls Club Teen Lounge, LC Health Planning Society Office and the Lake Country Alliance Church.
