Breanna’s Gift Board of Directors Combines Art with Playing Nice in the Sandbox

Breanna’s Gift Board of Directors and Program Coordinator, Kim Gordon attended a Sandcasting Workshop at FOCI, center for glass arts. This was a combination of fun, creativity and new  HOT experiences. Everyone is always good at playing nice in the sand box, so the small boxes of sand were no challenge for our group. Each class member made 2 castings with only one requirement.  One of the two pieces must be donated to the Breanna’s Star event on April 28. That is the most difficult part of the experience. Which one will be donated and which one will they keep. However, if it’s too hard to decide,  bidding on your own piece at the event is always an option!
