Start your family or group summer project now for the "Decorate a Birdhouse" Heritage Days art competition for all ages sponsored by Arts in Bartlett. Your birdhouse will be showcased at the annual Bartlett Heritage Days Festival on September 7 and 8 in the Arts in Bartlett area in the park on the corner of Railroad and Main St. The winners for each category will receive a ribbon, certificate and free 1-year membership to Arts in Bartlett. They will also be featured in press releases and newsletters. The birdhouses will be donated for a silent auction at an event later in the year to raise money for a high school senior scholarship and our Budding Talent Grant, which provides lessons, supplies, camps or other support to help young people who display an exceptional talent. A variety of inexpensive unpainted birdhouses are available at local craft stores and free birdhouse building workshops are also available at local home supply stores. Go to www.artsinbartlett.org to the Events page and download full details on how to enter your birdhouse or contact Arts in Bartlett at firstname.lastname@example.org or 630-372-4152.
