DVAL Art Awards
This year, the Delaware Valley Art League has awarded a scholarship to Community Arts Norristown (CAN), a non-profit art center which offers a full range of art, music, dance, yoga, sewing, computer and culinary classes for children and adults. Many of the participants are in need of scholarships, so CAN very much appreciates our contribution.
Community Arts Norristown would like to invite all DVAL members to a special benefit party on Sunday, February 24th, at La Cabra Brewing from 4-6:30 pm. There will be music, hors d'oeuvres, and a fabulous raffle, so plan to join the fun! Address is 642 Lancaster Avenue, Berwyn PA.
