This past weekend we participated in the Tumacacori Mission’s annual Fiesta, an Arizona State Parks-sponsored event with more than 50 vendors and around 4,000 visitors from all over the country and Canada!
Our large booth in the “Discovery Center” area of the multi-acre event was abuzz with “creativity”, as a constant flow of children (and their young-at-heart parents!) sat down to color images, make Holiday ornaments, sand wood cutting boards for gifts, as well as watch professional artists at work.
We also had a limited number of handcrafted pieces for sale and handed out coupons for several free art classes at the Hilltop on Saturdays.
A very special thanks to Board members Janice Johnson, Anne Jehle, Alex Jones, George Thomson and Curtis Kraushaar, plus members Virginia Vovchuk and others, for lending their valuable time and creativity in leading these activities.
Art supplies, materials and related expenses were covered thanks to grants from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona and United Way.
We are fortunate to have such great support to be able to participate in this fun, popular event, and look forward to doing it again next year!
