Art Safari Success

Thank you to everybody who turned out for Art Safari — and, of course, to the volunteers who made it all possible! There was a great turnout on Saturday for all kinds of art activities. The Art League got in on the fun with a scavenger hunt in the gallery, some freestyle painting on easels, and crayon resist watercolors:
