It was exciting for the students to show their artwork alongside 100 acclaimed artists and artisans as well as world-class animators and illustrators from the CTN Road Trip Burbank. This European-inspired street festival has great outdoor dining and entertainment in a festive downtown setting. The event was free and open to the public.

Pastimes for a Lifetime will definitely be back next year with an even bigger student art showcase.

Special thanks to office manager, Jessica Lee Sanders for her behind-the-scenes detail work in ensuring a successful show, before, during and after. Thanks also to students Dorothy Gamoning and Ginny LIeberman for assisting with the art installation early Saturday morning. The muffins and pastries brought by Ginny were a nice addition to the sign-in table.
