Keys 4/4 Kids Pianos on Parade
I just finished a full weekend of painting a piano for Keys 4/4 Kids Pianos on Parade in the Rotunda at the Mall of America. There were a total of 15 pianos, each with a different artist mentor and student. I had the honor of working with 2nd grader Nia Stiggers. This year's theme was "Color Coded" and our color was black. We decided to do a penguin party. After three initial meetings full of brainstorming and drawing, we were all set to start painting on Saturday morning. It was lots of work, but Nia was full of energy and up for the challenge! The pianos will be place in various locations around Minneapolis and St. Paul throughout the summer for the public to play. Our piano's location is TBA.
