Painting Party Success!

We had a great turn-out for the first painting party event open to the public, held at the Seward Community Library.  Vincent Van Gogh's Twelve Sunflowers inspired a plethora of beautiful painted bouquets, no two alike.  Thanks to everyone who attended and to Justine Pechuzal​ for leading the event. The Seward Arts Council is happy to support such creative and educational opportunities as this one.  Keep your eyes out for the next painting event slated in late May....Monet anyone????? 

Make-Your-Own Masterpiece Painting Party!
