Hands-on garden: Paint a Pot

Stop by and show off your artistic ability

This activity has become a Celebration Weekend staple. Each year visitors stand in line early for their chance at a ticket for the paint-a-pot project. Then, with the confidence of Picasso and an array of acrylic paints, the amateur artists decorate their pots. Afterwards, courtesy of Proven Winners, they receive a potted flower to plant in their work of art. And to keep things clean while the pots dry, the artists receive eco-friendly natural rope handles with which to carry their masterpieces around.
