Children’s art beautifies beach town

March 17, 2011

The pieces were made by children age 2 to 5 from the nonprofit Sámara Pacific School, as part of an after-school program organized by CREAR, the Foundation for Creativity, Education, Art and Social Responsibility, which has been operating in the area since 2005.
