“Explore Art was fun,” said Porter (Mahonia). “I sold a lot of headbands but I didn’t sell my last unicorn horn.”

“Explore Art had a generally good vibe and everyone seemed to be getting along and enjoying themselves,” recounted Reid (MAC) from I’ve Got My Eye On You Hats.  “A lot of people were interested in my googly eye hats and checked them out…with their eyes!”

We maxed out capacity with 25 adult vendors, many of them talented LCMCS parents and 15 student vendors selling homemade sweets, jewelry, art work, and accessories. Much holiday shopping galore was done by the 333 attendees! 

Other highlights were the great performances and variety of offerings.  Attendees enjoyed watching both the young and old folk dance together and seeing our own LCMCS staff sharing their talents. Kim Oda sold out of her delicious Kimchi.  Kids loved making their own ornaments with Tonja Anderson. Brekka Taft shared her painting prowess. 

We are grateful for the many volunteers that made it possible and we look forward to growing it even more next year. 

I think Explore Art was really nice.” said Elizabeth W. (Mahonia). “People were friendly and the food was delicious. I had a lot of interest in my homemade lollipops, especially from kids.  Go figure! One kid came to my booth and grabbed a lollipop because he wanted one and started to walk off. His parents helped him bring it back because he had already gotten his treat that night at one of the other yummy booths.”
