So bring art making supplies and popcorn. It's bound to be a fun event!!!

Artist in Residence Avalon Kalin!!!

Special thanks to Avalon for an active and all together inspiring residency! The day was filled with a walk shop, a new tradition (a pillow case to be passed along to future residents), a series of performances, and a hand dancing workshop. Here's a picture of Avalon, and of Janet Pants teaching our guests how to perform the hand dance.
