Photos From Painting Party With Gallery On The Go
Stephanie Leonard (a trained Gallery Guide with Gallery On The Go), brought out the inner Picasso in those who attended the painting party at the library Saturday (3/29). Participants followed Stephanie’s step-by-step instructions, to create their own unique versions of a “Whimsy Tree”. The paintings were created with acrylic paint and painted on canvas. It was fun to see the paintings progress and to see how different each one was when they were finished!
