โœจ Come Join the Fun at the Skyway Art Library Grand Opening! โœจ

We are over the moon to announce the grand opening of the Skyway Art Library! ๐Ÿš€ After 5 months of hard work and creative dreaming, Claudia Villalobs with Seattle Paint Party and the creative wizard Jackeline Nowell from CREA Space have conjured up an ART-tastic library for our community!

๐ŸŽจ What’s the scoop, you ask? Well, it’s a place to share, inspire, and create magic! ๐Ÿช„ We’ve got materials to spare, inspiration in the air, and a special space where creativity takes center stage!

๐ŸŽˆ You’re cordially invited to our Ribbon Cutting Extravaganza, where we’ll celebrate this enchanting moment! ๐ŸŽ‰ Expect to enjoy some light refreshments and goodie bags for the little ones. ๐Ÿ›๏ธ

๐ŸŽ But here’s the deal โ€“ to make sure every little artist has a bag of treasures, please RSVP! ๐Ÿ“† Let us know you’re coming so we can bring enough bags of artistic wonders!

๐ŸŽจ And here’s the cherry on top: If you’ve got any art supplies just itching to be part of our creative adventure, bring ’em along! ๐Ÿ–๏ธโœ‚๏ธ๐Ÿงถ We’re on a mission to fill this library with inspiration and possibilities.

We can’t wait to share the magic with you! ๐ŸŒŸ So mark your calendars, grab your creative spirit, and be part of this wonderful journey.

See you at the grand opening โ€“ let’s create a little art magic together! ๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŽจโœจ
