A closer look

Project LOOK! marks 30 years of up-close tours and hands-on activities for kids at the Palo Alto Art Center

by Rebecca Wallace

Soon, they'll be making claymation films.

Thanks for writing this! Recently I saw the "vaguely threatening spiderwoman" you mentioned and really wanted to know more about it. These kids are so talented and I'm glad they had a show so people could see it. My compliments to the artist and his instructor.
