The members of La Pena designed a very creative solution to two of their biggest challenges, finding paying work for artists and providing enriching summer camp activities for children who could not afford traditional camps. They found grant money to pay local artists with skills in a variety of media to be arts camp instructors and took camp to the kids. Youngsters in the predominately Hispanic Meadowbrook and Fairview Housing projects received professional instruction and had loads of fun in the process. Andale!
