Kids needed to paint chairs

The ABC -- Art, Books & Chairs -- Project undertaken by ArtReach is looking for children to paint the last of the 26 chairs donated to it by the Red Wing Public Library.

The children paint chairs depicting a famous person, character or book starting with a chosen letter.

"We still have five letters (of the alphabet) left," coordinator Dawn Zero Erickson said. "I have some really good letters left."

Any group of kids in Red Wing is eligible, including neighborhoods, families, clubs or school organizations; each group must have an adult coordinator. Up to five kids can paint at a time. Each group gets two sessions at ArtReach to complete a chair. Deadline is Aug. 30. All materials are supplied.

To volunteer, call Erickson at (651) 388-3217.
