Where The Action Was Today

In Oneonta – OWL Paintfest

Escaping mom Amanda, Ava Wilber, 2, of Oneonta, makes a bee-line for where the action was – painting, painting and more painting – this morning at the annual OWL Paintfest at the Foxcare Center in Oneonta. This year’s theme was The Five Senses, which resulted in a lot of hands-on activity. Inset, Darcie Cooperman’s boys – from left, Emmett, 3, Gabriel, 6, Henry, 8, and Avery, 5 – eyes pop as they pick from a display of chocolate bars. The New Jersey family stopped by Paintfest while visiting grandmom Donna Cooperman, Hobart.   The event was organized by Oneonta World of Learning (OWL), with support from Fox Hospital.
