Thank you to everyone who made a contribution to our Giving Tuesday campaign. This year the Council focused on art education for under served students and schools in Bucks County. Although we did not reach our goal, we are never the less happy to donate $440 to Bucks Artists in Residence to bring art lessons to those students.
