Peto’s Art Camp 4 Kids A Week at Camp


The second year of art camp was a great success and we look forward to offering it again next year.  The children painted and exhibited their artwork on Saturday, August 20, 2022 where friends and family gathered in amazement at all the wonderful paintings that were created during the week. Thank you to Nancy Corsaro for her exceptional job in providing art instruction to the young artists.
