As we do our last minute scurrying to get everything ready it looks like the 2012 Youth Mural Art Contest being held July 1st at 37 Main S South in Newmarket, Myers Costumes on Main, is shaping up!
The event wouldn't have happened if not for sponsors such as Home Depot who is covering the painting supplies, as well as Covernotes on Main who is sponsoring a couple gift certificate prizes as
is Touching Soles Travelling Spa, and Myers Costumes is feeding the volunteer performers while TPE Productions provided the network marketing and on site strategics.Covernotes also supplies the farmer's market with fresh coffee & tea as seen in above video.
What we plan to do is allow youths to paint a large square on the wall as representative of what they could do on a full wall. Entries online or on canvass or other form can also be submitted up until July 1st. Your entry will be photographed and whited over until another entry. Each entry will be judged.

11 year old William Oliver, already an accomplished artist and provincially ranked martial artist at the ripe old age, has entered two pieces for the contest. One depicts the general theme the (Myers) store manager has communicated she'd like to see, depicting old Newmarket and modern day, with the Artist choosing an abstract-like technique.
costume house wall, then Stonehenge which has spooky elements to its "image" to begin with and emanates from Oliver's piece, might be considered as well!
Young William is unable to attend July 1st which is why he's submitting early, but you can view his work on location at Myers Costumes on July 1st or view some fabulous on site youth artwork that day and see all the designs that form while listening to some live, youthful, entertainment and enjoying some BBQ!
Good Luck William and everyone!
