2025 Columbia Heights Youth Art Calendar

art calendar - Copy (2)
Calling all youth! What does community mean to you? Show us with your artwork for our 2025 wall calendar! The City will print a calendar featuring art by our very own resident youth artists. From now until Sep 1, use your crayons, colored pencils, markers, paints, or any other medium you choose to make art with the theme "Community" in mind. The calendar will also include important dates and reminders relevant to Columbia Heights.

We'll enlist the help of community members to select the final art pieces to be included in the calendar. Artists whose work is chosen to be featured for any of the 12 months of the year will receive recognition in the City Newsletter and a free copy of the calendar.
