Sarah MacDougall is organizing this year’s Monsters of Art show.

Monsters of Art looking for artists

Monsters of Art is looking for 20 artists to decorate skatedecks for a charity fundraiser.

The Monsters of Art is returning for its second year and organizer Sarah MacDougall is looking for artists to help decorate 20 skateboard decks that will be auctioned off as part of the fundraiser.

“The goal is to bring the community together and get creative juices flowing out there,” said MacDougall, who is teaming up with Our Habit to put on the project.

Last year, the Monsters of Art sketchbook project raised more than $1,000 for the Columbia Valley Skateboarding Association. This time, the money raised will go to a different community group, still to be determined.

There are 20 skate decks available for artists to decorate; they will be sold through Society Snow & Skate. There will be a $20 deposit on the decks and the artists will be able to set a minimum price for the auction.

The auction will be held on Feb. 11 as part of the Mackenzie Avenue rail jam during Spirit Fest. Also during the event, there will be a live painting going on by a surprise guest artist.
