Event to Support Art Trail at Buhl Park
SHARON, Pa. – The Sharon Tiger Techs are helping to support an Art Trail at Buhl Park in Hermitage.
Tasked with increasing the arts and technology this robotics season, the team has collaborated with Buhl Park and several partners in the Shenango Valley to help develop an art trail. The kickoff event, Paint the Park, will take place from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15, along the fitness trail at Buhl Park.
The event will promote a day of creating artwork along the trail, among many other activities. Community members of all ages and art backgrounds are invited to participate. Five pre-selected locations on the trail will host art stations where participants will create artwork depicting that scene.
Watercolors will be the primary medium of choice, with Buhl Park scene coloring pages for younger participants. All materials will be provided, and no expertise is needed to participate.
Professional artists will provide expertise and artwork demonstrations along the trail; local musicians will provide entertainment; and face painting will be provided for younger children.
Anyone who completes artwork for the day will be entered into a drawing for a free robot kit. In case of inclement weather, shelters will be used as backup locations.
After this day, a panel of judges will review the completed artwork and will select one from each of the five selected scenes/locations to be displayed on the trail. In spring 2024, the artwork will be installed next to the scene along the trail.
Artists or musicians wishing to participate should contact the Tiger Techs at email@example.com or 724 983 4015, ext. 5221.
