A snack for the palate with a palette on the side

What could be better than creating art with a helping of cookies on the side? Gabrielle Tufano teaches several painting techniques in her monthly Cookies and Canvas class at The Community House. Dahlia Raad adds some paint to her work. Parents are offered the opportunity to enroll with their children, and Melissa took the class with her daughter, Caroline Brown. Each month Tufano teaches a new technique to the students. (Jim Slonoff photos)
