Draw for the Troops
We’ve collected almost 1,000 drawings for the troops overseas!
Thank you to all our young artists who colored and drew for our Troops at festivals this past summer. 
This year, dozens of artists participated in the Green Ribbon Project and raised more than $2,000 benefiting these charities:

Bright Pink, Spinal Cord Injury, American Cancer Society, PADS Lake County, Autism Speaks, Face the Future, and the Art Center of Highland Park.

Thank you to the Artist Advisory Board who met October 17, reviewed the season and shared ideas for 2018. 

Artist Advisory Board Members in picture include left to right: Karina Llergo, Scott Fishman, James Cole, Diana Widman, Heather Hambrecht, Jill Scales, Dale Horn, Amy Manning, Candace Marsella, and David Dallison.
The Artist Advisory Board is a group of artists providing feedback on art festivals and related topics.
