Mix It Up, the fourth annual sidewalk painting event, will be held on Saturday, June 22 at Mix Park in Oregon.
Painting begins at 10 a.m. Groups or individuals can register to paint a 5x5 sidewalk square. The registration fee of $20 (per square, not person) includes five pints of washable tempera paint and two paint brushes.
“It is a fun-filled summer day at the park, creating art and enjoying time with others,” said Maja Shoemaker, Mix It Up coordinator.
Promotional materials and event T-shirts will feature a new logo designed by Meagan Boehle, Oregon.
Boehle, a sophomore at Oregon High School, designed the logo as a class assignment in Cheryl Bunton’s Computer Graphics class. Students from the class submitted logos to Mix It Up.
Boehle’s design features a tree and bright colors on a blue T-shirt.
T-shirts, featuring Boehle’s design, can be ordered for $15 when registering for Mix It Up. Proceeds fromT-shirt sales are used to fund a scholarship for an Ogle County high school senior pursuing a career in art or agriculture.
Registration forms are available at Nash Recreation Center in Oregon or online at: www.fieldsproject.com/mix.html.
