Niskayuna To Hold A “Paint Off” Contest On March 3rd

Heck, you gotta help your neighbors, right?  Being a Niskayunan, I thought I’d help spread the word about a very cool contest going on right in my town.

Since they sent me alot of information, I’ll keep my blabbing to a minimum, but this is so cool.  It’s a timed relay race that involves artistic talent.  What a brilliant idea!  Here’s  the info!

Do you enjoy art, the excitement of competition, and helping others?

Combine all three at the Niskayuna Paint Off, hosted by the Niskayuna Art Out!.  This is a timed relay race!
