Art in the Park
In the spring of 2015, a 12-year old from Casey Middle School named Elijah, approached Growing Up Boulder about his desire to facilitate public art in the Civic Area. GUB brought 14 3rd graders from Mackintosh Academy, Boulder to the Civic Area for a "plein air" painting session, in which children painted something from Colorado's natural world that they loved. A mother Canada Goose and her goslings were in the creek that day, and these geese featured prominently in many student's paintings. The works will hang in the public library this summer.
