This year, we celebrated the Fourth of July in Batavia, NY. Go Art, the Genesee Orleans Regional Arts Council, brought us in for their annual Picnic in the Park. Their celebration of art and community has been going on for 38 years, and we were honored by their invitation to put art in everyone's hands. While they had the usual festival treats of food, pony rides, and games, their goal was to share the joy of making art with everyone attending. We had a great time giving the community a chance to take part in building an Airigami creation. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TQ-KQ_TtE8
