Art at the Birmingham Community House

This was a small group this time, which made it very fun and very intimate. These apples were created by people who, for the most part, have never held a paint brush. They did an awesome job! Thank you Leah, Janice, Joe, Margaret, and Barbara for making the experience fun. As is everything with meaning, it's about the people!
