Additional Information

Kristi Pederson, owner of Adventure in Art, has always felt that troubled kids had a lot to say. They just sometime couldn't express themselves. With this in mind, she approached the local Drug Court and was allowed to do a presentation to all of the kids currently in the program. She held a contest and the winning design is what you see on the side of the building at my business. Almost all of the kids in Drug Court participated; from prep work to the actual painting of the mural and to the clean up stages as well. Alyssa Denny was the artist with the winning design.
