Gayane A. from Burbank was a volunteer for Open Arts & Music Festival on Saturday, September 15, 2018.
She was a member of the set-up and organizing team and started off by setting up pop-up tents for the various art schools and artists, participating the events. Gayane unloaded and set-up tables and chairs, to be used for the sponsors and artists. She helped to unpack and organize the art exhibition and the kids zone. Using colored chalks and crayons, Gayane drew pictures of animals and nature on the ground, on posters, and on the kids toys. She also helped artists to draw and color on posters, and assisted children in creating their own toys and drums in the kid's zone.
