Through the Mathews Memorial Library I participated in an interesting Do You Hear What I Hear art workshop at the Bay School. The Artist helping us was Hunter Banks, a very inspirational and quiet person who helped me see the song and art in a whole new light. The art workshop was a good way to interpret and view the song differently. I very much enjoyed the atmosphere and would do it again.
