Members of the Council for the Arts of Herndon let children do the honors of kicking off the organization's Arts Week which started this week.
On Monday, children from the area had the chance to celebrate their day off from school by participating in CAH's free event where storyteller Barbara Effron read to the children at Frying Pan Park.
After hearing her stories, the children were able to participate in the arts and crafts, set up the CAH members. Most of the crafts were geared toward the subject matters of the stories they heard.
CAH will be holding events all week for the celebration with a final cocktail party this Saturday at Ferrari Maserati of Washington in Dulles.
