IMPORTANT: Window painting rules and instructions (PDF)

  • Check in at the Hudson Library on Saturday or Sunday from 8 am to 2 pm. Artists may choose the timeframe they wish to paint.
  • One parent/chaperone must be present at check in and during the entire painting process.
  • Painting must be completed by 2 pm on the day chosen to paint.
  • During check-in you or your team will receive original artwork, T-shirts to wear & ONE supply bag containing: 9 paint colors, paintbrushes & a disposable drop cloth.
  • Look for the orange tag in the corner of the window with your name(s).
  • STOP – Look at your assigned window for cracks or defect. Contact one of the committee members ASAP if your window is damaged.
  • REQUIRED: BRING PAINTERS TAPE – DROP CLOTH must be used to cover the bottom of the window & sidewalk. Please use painting tape to attach it.
  • Your window has been marked off with blue tape – BE VERY CAREFUL – DO NOT PAINT ON or OUTSIDE OF THE TAPE!!! Merchants have been very generous to allow the use of their windows. If we damage or make a mess, we risk losing their trust and the ability to paint their window in the future.
  • Only use the Paint Provided! NO GLITTER or SPLAT PAINTING ALLOWED! YOUR PAINTING WILL BE REMOVED. These are simple rules to follow and are in place for a reason. We hate to remove a student’s artwork. Please don’t make us do that.
  • Paint will crack if put on too thick. If paint is thick – add water.
  • If you spill paint on the sidewalk or stain the windowsill, please clean it up immediately!
  • Please do not enter the merchant store for water or to clean brushes.
  • Stay clear of business entrances if possible. Please move for customers that are entering or exiting. We want to make sure businesses can function as usual.
  • IMPORTANT – Clean your area when finished. Remove the blue tape and the orange tag from the window. Move any flower containers/furniture back if you have moved them. Clean up any paint spills. Dispose of your trash in provided trash cans.
  • Please bring back any unopen or slightly used paint. We can utilize unopen paint next year and donate slightly used bottles local charities.
  • Smaller/Larger Paint Brushes
  • Garbage Bag
  • Dry Erase Markers
  • Stepladder/stool
  • Paper Plate/Bowls for Paint
