FOR SUPPORTING CHILDREN'S PROJECT
Arts On The Creek would like to extend its most heartfelt thanks to The Home Depot for donating 450 wood blocks for our Children's Project at the Johns Creek Arts Festival this weekend.
Stephanie Curtis, General Manager of the store at 5950 State Bridge Road, Johns Creek, took care of AOTC and helped make art happen for hundreds of kids. Children will be painting these donated blocks of wood with the goal of using their work in a public display. As we have for the previous three years, AOTC will display the work of high school artists from Centennial, Chattahoochee, Johns Creek and Northview. Plus, the Northview Jewels for Jewels will sell jewelry.
