THEA Paves the Way (if it doesn't rain!)

Posted By on Fri, Sep 28, 2012 at 1:28 PM



The seventh annual Thea Paves the Way sidewalk chalk event at the Clinton Presidential Park kicks off tomorrow, Saturday, at 8:30 a.m. Students and teachers and families will be able to turn those blank concrete canvases into art and enjoy other events, like music, the Parkview Magnet High School mimes, concessions, caricatures by Democrat-Gazette cartoonist John Deering and free admission to the Clinton library. Teachers who register their students and compete together as a school group have a chance to win one of two $250 gift certificates for arts supplies from Dick Blick.

The event is hosted by the Thea Foundation, which promotes the arts as a path to success at school and life. Admission is free; the event wraps up at 1 p.m. If it looks iffy in the a.m., go to Thea's website at 8 a.m. to check to see if a rain date's been set.
