Submit an art design to Holy Innocents’ Church
The Community Garden at Holy Innocents’ Church has a nice, big shed that houses its tools and supplies. The church loves its shed and to make it even more beautiful it is inviting any artist under the age of 18 to submit a design of nature-inspired images to go all around all four sides of the shed.
You may work alone or in a group to create an colorful mural. The gardeners will help paint, but the inspiration is what is needed. If you are interested, submit a color drawing to the church’s  email address at highlandscommunitygardengroup@yahoo.com. The deadline is June 28. Judging will be by the vestry (board of elders) at Holy Innocents’ Church.
