Community Art in Concho
Over the past year I've had the opportunity to participate in several fun art projects within the Concho community. I have enjoyed sharing my knowledge of art and printmaking with students at the Concho Elementary School and with the kids at the Activity Center After School Program. We've really had a good time together and I am looking forward to participating in more art projects with the folks in Concho.
We also participated in the Concho Holiday Bazaar this past weekend, as well as showed at the Arts and Crafts Festival this summer.
