Calling young artists in the Cass Corridor!

The Cass Corridor Neighborhood Development Corporation (CCNDC) and Detroit Summer (www.detroitsummer.org) is hosting an art mural summer program in the Cass Corridor. The program is a 2-3 week program that will start at the beginning of August. We are looking for 10-15 youth artists (ages 8-19), who will have the opportunity to work with local muralist Ron Cochran to create and design a large indoor wall mural inside of the CCNDC Community Center (near Cass Ave and MLK). Together, participants will develop a mural that is reflective of community-based values. The program will end with a celebration to unveil the mural to the community. Youth who are interested in the visual arts are strongly encouraged to apply. Sessions will be held 2-3 times a week, totaling 30 hours to design, develop and paint the mural. There is no cost to the program; deadline to apply is July 21, 2006.

To apply, or for more information, please contact Michelle Lin at mlinz@riseup.net.
