To commemorate our 45th Birthday we are asking the community to paint a few large-scale murals on the Co-op property during the summer months. One of the murals will be for kids, the others for all ages. We welcome all interested community members, Shareholders, and artists of all ages. No previous experience necessary as our esteemed Shareholder and mural artist Terry will help support anyone interested through this process. Requested themes will either be food-, agriculture-, or cooperative-related activities, and should include the BFC logo, name, or mascot. Our first meeting will be held in the Community Room on April 24th from 4-5:30pm. We will supply food, paper, and pencils to begin sketching ideas. We will set future meetings based on the group that attends.
Free Kids Project: ART STOP!
Bring the kids to the Brattleboro Co-op to make a quick, seasonal harvest art project at the Demo Counter (located at Cheese Island). Little ones will need an adult to help them with their project; ages 7-10 can work at the counter/table on their own. Facilitators: Linda Whelihan, BMAC Educator, and Lizi Rosenberg, BFC Education Outreach Coordinator. Wednesday, October 24, 4-5pm
