Break out your shorts, dresses, and t-shirts, because it's getting warm again! See what we updates we have for this Spring. 
    - We set up a facepainting station and advertised our summer camp at the Convention Center's Children's Expo on Mach 23, and it was a rousing success! We had many visitors who were excited by our camp, and we are ready to make a big marketing push. Check out all summer camp information under "Summer Camps" on and spread the word!
     - In that vain, we are looking for volunteers to help with the camp. It will run in three two-week sessions from June 5 until July 26, and we need people to help monitor the kids, manage pick-up and drop-off times, and create a positive, creative environment. If interested, go to the "Summer Camps" page on our website and click the volunteer sign-up link.

     - Along with that, Artisan Alley is always looking for donations. We are a big operation with three unique locations, and each of those locations need everything from toilet paper to art supplies to monetary donations. We have a registry on our website, but if you have anything else you think we might need, we'll gladly take it!
