Fundraiser with Borders bookstores!

Borders bookstore has been kind enough to help us raise some funds for our fantastic programs! If you shop at the Borders in Richfield or Rosedale August 15 – 19, present the Urban Arts voucher and 15% of the net sales raised will be donated to Urban Arts Academy!

On Saturday, August 15, stop by the Borders in Richfield at 1pm or the Borders in Rosedale at 6pm to see us! We'll have Tread Print art made by Urban Arts kids on display, with supplies available for anyone to reinact - on a smaller scale - their own Tread Art! What is Tread Art, you're wondering? Well. The Urban Arts Academy's Kid Power program will be working with FullCycle bike shop to create some unique and fun pieces of artwork, known as Tread Art. Our kids will ride bikes through chalk across a canvas, leaving patterns that result in one-of-a-kind pieces of art. Still confused, or just curious? Stop by Borders on Aug. 15 and see what we're talking about!

And thank you friends and family, interns and staff for making Family Night a HUGE success! The kids had so much fun showing off their projects, and it was great to get to see everyone all together for the evening.
