Calling Local Artists
The 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 sdfrc1@windstream.net or call (336) 859-5399 for more info. Here’s your chance to share your talents with the community!



 
Second Annual Watermelon Festival and Cornhole Tournament
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.
