    This is the eighth year for this program which is presented by Burien Arts Association.
    Thanks to this non profit, we have Artshops, Shakespeare in the Park, Jazz Walk in September, Vision 20/20 in November, and pop up art exhibits on the library’s 3rd. floor (municipal office foyer). Burien Arts also does the face painting at Arts a Glow, and Dia de las Muertos. Burien Arts Association is run entirely by volunteers.

    So happy to hear this is happening in Burien! How about a similar program for adults and seniors who want to try their hand at a bit of art.
