First Friday June Coloring art Adventure

Let’s All Pull Our Oars Together in a Minne-Mural™ Coloring Art Adventure
Gather Online – June 5th
Plan to join the Kolling Cards and Things Made Here
First Friday Art Online
Minne-Mural™ Coloring Art Adventure
into the amazing world of coloring art
and celebration of Scandinavian heritage
4:30 p.m. June 5th, 2020 via Zoom

The theme will be Scandinavian-American Heritage and the main focus will be the Viking Ship.

From Cindy:
“The mass cancellations and closings of so many of this season’s Scandinavian festivals, events and museums and specialty stores are just “Uffda” for a lot of people. With that in mind, and because the First Friday in June falls right between Syttende Mai and Midsummer; Scandinavian-American Heritage seems like a good topic for a Minne-Mural™ Coloring Art Adventure!
Admission to the event will be free to you and your household/workplace with purchase of any size “Uff Da” Home Delivery Care Pack from the Kolling Cards website; or an acknowledged sale from your favorite Scandinavian Heritage Minne-Mural™ resource store….
or if you are a participating presenter in the session!
We don’t know what the status of the nation’s home stays and the store and other closings will be on June 5th, but this event is designed to “roll with the flow”.
Let’s all color together in good health!
The zoom event will be a mix of Minne-Mural™ Coloring Art tips, techniques and reviews with special focus on the Viking Ship Minne-Mural™ Coloring Art Poster. This will be combined with bits and tidbits of Scandinavian heritage and history shared by willing participants.
One of these participants can be you!

You’ve come to know that with Minne-Mural™ Coloring Art Posters, there is much learning along with creative coloring. Minne-Mural™ Coloring Art Posters offer “coloring with content” and we “Learn Stuff while we have Fun!” In addition to creating amazing wall art; we will learn stuff during this event, too.
Be a Participating Presenter! I want to include short participator’s presentations related to Scandinavian heritage (and Vikings in particular) to alternate with the Minne-Mural™ Coloring Art tips. It should somehow focus on the subject of Viking ships (or Viking era), or on the general concept of Scandinavian-American heritage. It can be historical facts or it can be personal perception. (Please try to clarify which 🙂 We will allow a little creative latitude on how you connect your presentation to the Viking ships; but please include any disclaimers necessary and remember to keep it suitable for all ages.
Please also only bring content that is not proprietary (belongs to someone else) unless you have permission. This part will be on you. Share credit when you should.”

How to become a Participant Presenter…
In advance, please send your basic content proposal (appropriate for all ages) to kollingcards@gvtel.com. She can discuss the details with you.
