The first two Community Painting Parties were a huge success. Guest local artists, Michael Vedder and Janet Goldstein worked with dozens of artists who joined the fun.
Michael facilitated the first event at Davison Library on November 7th and Janet provided guidance at the Grand Blanc Library on November 15th.
Everyone had a great time, creating colorful works of art. Stay tuned for information on the next party!
Here are a few of the photos from the events...
