Art Sampler @ Play Town Square

The gals at Play Town Square in Mt. Lebanon and I are offering an Art Sampler on Wednesday, November 20, 3pm-4pm.

This experience is meant for ages 1-10 and their families. There will be paper making, flower design using paper marbling, and a group weaving project – plenty to keep your littles busy!

This program is free with a play ticket and participants can drop in anytime during the hour, taking home at least two fall themed art wonders.
