BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! ART ON THE AVENUE – SATURDAY, OCT. 3, 2015

posted Sep 18, 2015, 5:33 PM by Laurie Winakur

The PTA will be hosting the popular "sand art" activity at Art on the Avenue again this year. Art on the Avenue is a multi-cultural arts festival that takes place along Mount Vernon Avenue near GWMS. The festival attracts 300+ artists, musicians and food vendors ... and up to 50,000 visitors per year. It's a great opportunity for GW families to interact with future students and the Alexandria community! WE NEED 25-30 VOLUNTEERS TO MAKE IT A SUCCESS! ... We are seeking about 10 adults to get us started. We envision 2-3 adults working alongside 3-4 students in shifts throughout the day  ARTISTIC TALENT IS NOT A PRE-REQUISITE ... This is a fun, interactive activity! There is a manageable job for anyone who wants to join us.  Please contact Patrice Linehan for more information or to help.  [Phone: 703-946-543; E-mail: linehanp@yahoo.com]
