If you were asked to show your artistic “essence” on a 4X6-inch card, what might it look like?  In September we are challenging your family to create miniature works of art out of a variety of fun materials.  Once you do, we invite you to take one home and donate another for our Trading Card Exhibit.

Bring your family to Arts for All at the GPAC Sept 3 -25 on Saturdays and Sundays during open hours to participate in this activity. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
