Painting Workshop Photos

Here are some photos from last Sunday's art workshop in Millenium Park, Chicago.
Despite of the rain forecast, the painting workshop had a great turnout.

More than sixty (adults and kids) participated in the workshop.

Some families came all the way from Wisconsin, Michigan and Florida
to attend the free painting workshop.
