Halloween Window Painting Contest
Oct. 23, 2021
Fall fun continues with a Halloween Window Painting Contest on Saturday, October 26th. The contest is open to all Winchester/Winsted students in the K-6 age group, including those attending schools out of town or are home-schooled. Teams of kids will be out and about painting their assigned windows during the day, beginning at 9:00AM.
Brew up a frightening display of ghosts and goblins - tricks and treats for the best paintings!!
Get signed up for the contest! Forms for the Halloween Window Painting Contest is will be dropped off at the K-6 school offices by the afternoon of October 8.
All forms are due back to the school offices on/by Friday, October 15.
“Painting Day” is Saturday, October 23, but children will have until Noon on Sunday, October 24, to complete their windows (some may have sports/activities Saturday). Participating families will need to plan ahead and pick up their paint between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Saturday (or they will miss this opportunity).
All windows will be judged Sunday afternoon
A sampling of the the young students' spooky artwork will be shared in the the Friends of Main Street weekly update email and our blog in the NEWS section.
Reminder: Parents are responsible for brushes (inexpensive disposable foam ones work well), water and a small container to rinse their brushes, paper towels, a drop cloth to keep the sidewalk clean, and something to take their trash home in (please do not leave it for the shop owner).
We always try to pair younger children with lower windows, but parents should bring a small step stool/chair just in case. Please limit the use of black in their artwork, as a concentration of black draws sunlight/heat, causing glass breakage.
