Festival of Trees

The KWEC is participating in the Barton Community College Shafer Art Gallery’s Festival of Trees!  KWEC staff has worked hard to prepare ornaments for this year’s tree, and we think it really shines.  The Festival of Trees is open until December 18th, and there’s a special Open House from 1-4 pm December 9th.  Stop by and get in the holiday spirit with beautiful trees decorated by members of the community!


Pam Martin and KWEC grad student Stasya Berber hard at work putting the finishing touches on our tree!



All of our ornaments are painted eggs, this lovely owl was done by Pam Martin.
