Art in the Park!

What a fantastic turnout for Art in the Park! And we even had sun! Go figure. There was teepee painting, mural painting, rock spin art and play dough nature prints. It was so fun to see all the little ones engaging in a variety of outdoor-themed projects. People came from all over the Bay Area. Some had never been to Lincoln Park before. How cool is that?
