Project Details
During the Artists of Today Inspiring the Artists of Tomorrow project, Chisago Lakes Area Community Education will connect the children who live in Chisago County to local artists so the children can be inspired to be artists tomorrow. The 19 artists will teach the children their artistic skills and share their artistic passions during afternoon art classes. The project will culminate with an open to the public art show to be held at the Chisago Lakes High School cafeteria during the month of December 2015.
