Nine Carmel High School (CHS) students are working under the guidance of artists from the Arts & Design District to paint five Adirondack chairs that were manufactured by students in CHS manufacturing department.
Finished chairs will be displayed in each artist’s gallery during the June 9 Gallery Walks (5-9pm), where community members will vote on the best chair.
All student artists will receive gift bags with Arts & Design District Mershandise and a free beignets card from Mudbugs.
The winning chair/student(s) will receive $300 from the Arts & Design District sponsors (Edward Jones) and a 2-hour painting class at the French Bleu Gallery with artist Susan Mauck.
The runner-up will receive 2 $25 gift certificates to the Artisan Masterpiece and a $25 gift certificate to the Simply Sweet Shoppe.
All other participants will enjoy cakes decorated with an Adirondack chair on it from Rascia's Bakery and tea from Teabuds.

Proceeds will be divided evenly between the CHS art department and the CHS Robotics Team.
The CHS art students will use the sponsorship money to renovate and decorate the neglected CHS courtyard, including painting murals on the walls and planting a variety of plants.
The CHS Robotics Team will use the proceeds as a scholarship for team members who cannot afford to attend/travel to the Robotics Team regional and national competitions.
