Students create art in Chambersburg

October 26, 2008

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Young artists inspired by Chambersburg Reads' theme of "Northwest Wilderness Adventures" created art in downtown Chambersburg on Oct. 11.

Area students in grades 6 to 12 painted The Capitol Theatre Center's windows in time for AppleFest on Oct. 18. Chambersburg Reads is a collaboration of nonprofit groups promoting reading and literacy throughout the community. Every two years, a theme is selected, and events are planned with the purpose of encouraging reading. The theme for 2008 is "Northwest Wilderness Adventures."

"We always love to see what the young artists in our area create for the window contest," said Anne Finucane of the Chambersburg Reads committee. "They show wonderful imagination and creativity in their designs, and then have had to use their technical skills to reproduce them in the 3-foot-square format."
