Kid artists to paint downtown windows
For the third year, tiny artists are partnering with the Quincy Business Association to add a little color to the downtown corridor.
Young artists will be out in force, armed with washable paints and paint brushes, on March 12 and March 19.
For those interested businesses, the young artists will paint their windows with spring scenes — flowers, rabbits and other cheerful designs — as a tribute to Easter and Mother’s Day.
“It’s an effort to brighten up the downtown area for spring,” said Sunshine Didra, a Quincy Business Association board member.
Board members are asking businesses if they would like to join in the effort. Cost is $10, with an additional $10 if a business would like a professional window cleaner to wash its windows after Mother’s Day. Money raised goes toward the costs of paint and supplies.
Painting days will be 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 12 and then again on March 19. Children of a variety of ages will be participating.
If you are interested in having the young artists stop by, call Molly Richardson at 787-4347 or Didra at 787-4511.
