The Family Art Program, directed by Mary Hughes, presents creative art activities for children at City festivals. Local art educators and volunteers plan, prepare and guide young visitors in hands-on art projects. It is inspiring to see the hundreds of enthusiastic children filling the seats of the art tables throughout the day.
Look for our booth at the annual Art in the Garden at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Gardens in June, at the Fourth of July Celebration in Memorial Park, at Village Venture every October and at the Padua Hills Art Fiesta in November.
