Cobb Collaborative & Paint Love Present Basics Workshop in Austell 

Basics Paint Love July 2023

The VISION of Cobb Collaborative is, ” Cobb County partners working together to create opportunities for all people to thrive.” We are fortunate to have a strong membership network and incredible community partners whose common goal is to continue to make Cobb County a great place for live, work and play for ALL people.

The Basics Cobb County is Cobb Collaborative’s Birth-5 programming that aims to provide fun, simple, and powerful strategies to help every child reach their full potential. On Saturday, July 15, 2023, we had the incredible opportunity of presenting a Basics workshop at Collar Park in Austell with our friends from Paint Love.

We had so much fun with the children and families who came out for this event. We explored through movement and play with Ms. Leslie and Ms. Kaleigh, we enjoyed story time with Austell Mayor Ollie Clemons and we used our creativity to paint with Paint Love! We all left with huge smiles on our faces and joy in our hearts from having such a great time together on Saturday morning!
