Paint will be supplied. Trash cans will be available for pick- up the week of May 8 at the Decatur Park District Admin office (620 E. Riverside Avenue), Cans must be returned by June 26.

• Participants will be provided a metal trash barrel (primed with white paint) upon which to create their design. The barrels are approximately 3’ tall and 20” with a total
surface area of 400 square inches.
• Artists will be provided 1 quart each of primary paint colors (red, blue, yellow) to mix in order to create the colors they wish to utilize.
• Barrels must be designed vertically.
• Designs must be suitable for public viewing by all ages.
