A chat with Lea McLean - Our March artist


Léa McLean is an art educator besides having an attachment to teaching

she has a love for anything involving movement and noise. For this

window display she decided to collaborate with her awesome students

from Rosyln Elementary and the Visual arts Center. They created colorful

mixed media art work! All of this to bring some joy into our lives and raise

funds for Spectrum Production, which is an organization that helps

autistic students through video and media productions!

All the profits

will go to this program since it is important to support programs that try

and give students a place where they can express themselves and feel
