How about we collaborate this summer?

Okay, so I've wanted to create some artwork for this super cool festival for two years now... and finally I CAN! But it's rather ambitious and so I'm going to need help. What am I doing? 

A CASTLE of the Arts! 

Four towers will represent individually, INNOVATION, FUNCTIONALITY, LITERARY & EXPRESSION. I plan to make in interactive for both adults and children and everyone in between! Cardboard, styrofoam, reclaimed wallpaper, carpet tube rolls, spools, plant pots... paper mache and painting and probably a LOT more!! Construction will begin in mid June! 

Deadline to complete it is July 10th. It will be set up as an outdoor summer camp activity only and only registered students will be permitted onsite at the Studio. Final outcome will find it on display in downtown Okotoks as part of the festival for six weeks! 

If this is something your child or teen may be interested in being a part of, I hereby INVITE them to apply to join here. OR click the picture below!
