This summer Val Mann taught a great summer program at Salt Valley Arts. Once a month she held an Art Day - Respite Art Program at Salt Valley Arts sponsored by EVH. The program featured an art activity for residents and their visitors. It was a great way for them to get in touch with their creative side and enjoy a fabulous day of art. Val was assisted by SVA Artists and instructors throughout the summer. This has been a great community activity enjoyed by all.

This was a great day of printing and stencils on fabric, and paper. Looks like someone has their Christmas gift making well underway@

Fall Mini Crafternoon event was hosted by the Saline Library with SVA instructors helping attendees create wonderful fall projects. It was a great opportunity for attendees to experience some fun, fall crafts with the instruction of our fabulous Salt Valley Arts instructors. Watercolor bookmarks, hand-stitched cards, and faux stained glass pieces were created under the instruction of SVA artists. SVA instructors; Christy Howden, Cynthia Baxter, and Ann Stofflet made this a Great Fall Event!
