The Bell Arts Factory patio was transformed into California landscape for the May 2017 First Friday. The children in our after-school art program, with the help of our teacher Michelle, brought the super-bloom from the hillside straight to Ventura’s westside.
It was also a night of celebration for the children, who were able to sing and dance, eat cupcakes, and exhibit their work for their parents and friends, alongside all of the other artists for First Friday.
