Volunteers and artists are being sought for the third annual Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival.

The April 12 and 13 event will need about 700 volunteers to assist with guest and artist relations and children's and performing arts activities. The festival will be along the waterway from The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel area on through Town Green Park. Proceeds will be donated to local arts-related programs.

Sally Maxwell, of LaGrange, will be the featured artist, displaying her scratchboard art. The process begins with a solid surface covered in white Kaolin clay. Black India ink is layered on top. The black is scratched off the layered board, revealing the white clay. The etched area is painted with different India ink colors. The paint dries and then the carved area is re-cut once it has dried. There will be water taxi and trolley service throughout the festival area. A Palette Cafe will be set up with a dinning area, serving food from area restaurants such as P.F. Chang's, according to Lynette Wallace, executive director and media contact for the festival.

""It's got a beautiful ambience with the waterway, and having the artists on a single pathway gets the patrons attention for that single point of time,"" Wallace said. ""The artists love it as well.""
