SoHi seeks volunteer painters

Participants will paint in the school art room Monday through Friday all day until 6 p.m.

The school also will have an open studio this Sunday starting at 1 p.m. To help Sunday, enter the school through the back door by the custodians' parking.

Bring lunch or a few dollars to share in ordering pizza.

Hugi-Lewis is an internationally known artist overseeing this project, which is made possible by a grant from the Alaska Council on the Arts.
