PAINTING HOLIDAY CHARACTERS (Flexible)
Yes, we know… the holidays are months away! Before you know it, it will be just around the corner! To prepare our decorations in advance, we are looking for a handful of skilled painters that would not mind volunteering their time to paint life-size holiday characters (elves, nutcracker, etc) and Christmas trees. The boards have already been cut and primed. For interested artists, please email [email protected]sanstudios.org!
