Ordinary to Extraordinary (Shorts Program)

Saturday, February 2 – 1:30pm
Ages 11+

See how an artist brings her paintings to life, how a big bad wolf is not so bad, how a girl can turn into a horse, how all things in nature are truly connected, how time can stand still when you realize a grandmother and mother’s love, and how to step inside the mind of another person to change it.
