Boardwell artists update

The talented ladies at Boardwell have been busy down in Mexico! Courtney Branch & Lindsay Carron spent a week in the tiny town of Baja California working on a large scale mural for an after school program called Oasis. They worked for nine hours a day for five days to complete the theme: A desert oasis, on 3,450 sq feet of wall space in the outdoor courtyard.  The kids seem really excited to have helped!
