A dozen local artists will involve community members in a shared paint-by-number experience during the First City Celebration on July 13th from 11am-6:00pm. The project, sponsored by the Three Rivers Artist Guild with grants from the Mt Hood Territories Cultural Partnership Program and the Oregon City Rotary Club, will celebrate Oregon City and the arts. Money raised will be donated to Oregon City Schools to benefit art programs.
Artists will each be assigned letters to create a unique paint by number outline that uses up to 8 colors. People attending the First City Celebration can participate in coloring 5 sections for every $2 they donate. Once completed, the letters will be combined to create a mystery phrase that will be revealed and displayed on the Main Stage during the Celebration.
