Family working together in Arts for All room 

Have you ever done a scavenger hunt where you had to DRAW the items you found? That’s exactly what families are doing in Arts for All this month. We are inviting community members to stop by on Saturdays and Sundays to make their own mini sketch kits, complete with pencils, pastels, erasers, colored pencils, and paper. After that, we will send you out into the gallery or the park to find items on our Sketch Scavenger Hunt. Once you have drawn all the items on the list, you can post them on our Scavenger Hunt boards in the gallery for everyone to see! Read the rest of this entry »
