JOHN DAY – Painted Sky Center for the Arts Board Director Kim Randleas, along with the center’s new Executive Director Valerie Munion, were on KJDY’s Coffee Time and explained that their after-school art program has the children learning about art in unique ways:

VALERIE: It’s a little bit beyond ‘craft projects’ for their age.”
