Art and Kids, A Classic Combination
PAL is looking for artists who enjoy working with kids and art. There are several City venues who are interested in working with PAL/LAA members in the development of art programs and projects for children. These venues include the Aviso Adobe and the Museum on Main. Events include the Adobe Spring Festival in Pleasanton, the Ignite Art and Innovation in Pleasanton, and Splatter in Dublin. Age groups elementary through high school will be considered. The timing could be ongoing, seasonal, or event-specific. Tri-valley parents support the arts and are always looking for ways to get their kids involved. PAL and LAA have the knowledge to provide great programming in the visual arts while strengthening our valuable relationships with these treasured City sites. If you think you might be interested in future projects of this sort, please send an email to Beth Okurowski (email@example.com) who is compiling a list.
