Join us for our next exciting adventure in Arts for All!  During the National Arts Program exhibit, we will be making our very own sketch kits so we can draw whenever inspiration strikes. After putting together and decorating your kit, participate in our Sketch Scavenger Hunt! We’ll send you out into the gallery or the park to find various things to draw. Then bring your drawing back to us and we will display it for all to see.
