Adelante’s Arts & Animals program hosted a holiday arts and crafts sale in mid-November. The artists within the program created art pieces with high-quality fine arts materials. The sale included paintings, ceramics, jewelry and more. Thematically, many of the art pieces included imagery for the holiday season. Playful snowmen, holiday cards, and ornaments were just a few of the art pieces that onlookers could purchase.

Two women smile and look at art pieces in the sale.

People enjoyed viewing and buying all the art pieces created in the sale.
