Calling Local ArtistsThe South Davidson Family Resource Center would like to partner with local artists to display their
talents and raise money for our cause! We have large windows, to be used for a fundraiser, which measure 45x40 inches and
have 12 panes. We are asking artists, to paint, decorate, and showcase their talents on these windows to be auctioned off
to raise funds for renovation of the Griffis Clinic on South Main in Denton, our new Resource Center location. These windows
came out of the clinic, which was donated to our nonprofit agency by Dr.’s Felizardo and Florita Mangundayao. If you
are interested in decorating one of these windows please contact Kaitlyn Baker at email@example.com or call (336) 859-5399
for more info. Here’s your chance to share your talents with the community!
Second Annual Watermelon Festival and
By Kelly Bledsoe
The Denton Artisans is gearing up for the second annual Watermelon
Festival and Cornhole Tournament to be held on August 4, 2018 from 9am to 2 pm in Harrison Park. The Watermelon Festival is
an old fashioned, family friendly event complete with watermelon contests, festival food, artisans market, music, dunk tank,
cornhole tournament, and of course the watermelon pageant.
This year the guild is looking for local businesses to help sponsor the festival. The money raised will be used to
host an Art Summer Camp for children in the Denton area during the summer of 2019.
Also this year The Denton Artisans Guild will be partnering with the Davidson County
Parks and Rec Summer Camp Program for children in the Denton area offering an art class every day complete with the instructor
and all the supplies for the four weeks of day camp.
Last years festival was a huge success with a great turnout and this year’s festival promises to be even better.
Members of the guild have been hard at work all year making plans and implementing improvements in order to meet their goal
and commitment of bringing arts to the children of Denton.
With enough sponsorship funds the guild hopes to host the festival in grand style generating funds that would go
a long way towards eventually hosting their own Arts Summer Camp. The Denton Artisans Guild has partnered with Arts
Davidson County, and are a “division of” giving them non-profit status as a 501-c3 so all donations made to sponsor
the festival would be tax deductible to the donors. This partnership also strengthens our base of volunteers and artists
for the improvement of the arts in our community.
