Children are using their creative designs as they paint street banners for the Summerland Art Centre’s annual banner project.

The project has been going for 18 years, This year’s theme is It’s Special to Me.

Since the painting started on March 14, a total of 47 people have been participating, mainly between the ages nine and 12.

There are still four spaces available.

Banners are displayed around town during the late spring, summer and fall. After they are taken down, they are available for sale. Children’s banners are $50. For the older age groups the banners can go to as low a price as $30.

In May, 18 Good Will Shakespeare students are going to be painting their own banners.
