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.

First Friday — The NWMAC Can help Promote your event

First Friday is an arts-related event held each month on the first Friday of the month. These recurring local cultural and social events promote artists and arts events throughout the country for the purpose of showcasing and exhibiting art, introducing residents and visitors to artists and the arts in your area and the opportunity to sell or purchase and collect art. These self-guided events may also feature promotions at individual businesses who may extend their hours of operation. First Fridays may be as simple as individual artist studios opening up for a Friday evening or a coordinated city-wide art crawl.

The NWMAC would like to help promote any First Friday events in our region. We will do this by adding your event to a region-wide map and sharing the information on our website, Facebook, Instagram, Explore Minnesota website, and in our newsletters. Are you interested in participating? Or do you have questions? Contact our Promotions Specialist, Kristin Eggerling at keggerling@gmail.com.

At this time, we are planning to begin our promotions for the May 1, 2020 First Friday. The Entry Due Date is the first Friday of the prior month. So, to be included in the May 1 map you will need to let NWMAC know that you are participating ASAP.

Use our online grant system to submit the information about your event.

When are First Fridays in 2020? Dates include May 1, June 5, July 3, August 7, September 4, October 2, November 6, and December 4. (these are also the dates to let us know your plans for the next month)

Do I have to commit to each First Friday? No. You may be interested in holding a First Friday event only once, periodically, or every first Friday. It’s your choice.

What if I want to open my studio for a First Friday, but no one else in my community wants to hold events? The NWMAC will promote all First Friday events in our region. One event in a community is fine.

Is there a cost to participate? There is no cost to be listed on our map or for our promotions.
