Shop anywhere in Montclair, and you can't help noticing bright paintings on the storefront windows. It's the artwork of "2006 Paint Montclair", sponsored by the Montclair Art Museum. Last Saturday, 160 kids who participated in the contest found their inner artist. MAM provided paints, brushes and palettes (ok, paper plates) and instructions to paint a springtime picture. The junior painters spread out in seven business districts from the South End to Upper Montclair
About a dozen judges made the rounds to admire the masterpieces, including Mayor Ed Remsen, Jim Peskin, Director of Montclair Arts Council, Councilors Sandra Lang and Gerald Tobin, and Andy Foster, owner of Gallery 51. At an award ceremony later that day, the first prize winners in each area received a coupon from Applegate Farms
for an ice cream cone and a certificate from Nauna's Bella Casa for a slice
and a soda. 15 kids received
honorable mentions. All participants had a chance at the grand prize - the winner's name was pulled out of a
hat, lottery style. The prize was a two week class at the Yard School of Art at MAM. Thanks, kids, for brightening up our town!

I saw some the other day on South Fullerton shop windows - it's great to see the kids making art, and being able to show it someplace where they know it will be seen and can be proud of their work.

I love when the kids paint the windows. But, did they use a different paint this year? Many of the paintings are already coming off or running down the windows. I don't remember that happening before.

It is real to look at, if various kind of paint was being used up there. That would be pretty awesome in this spring. It would be attractive to the clients and customers.
