Reviews for Pacific Art League of Palo Alto
Since retirement art has become a passion. I discovered PAL as a unique community resource. Learning how to paint and then to create art was just the beginning for me. PAL offered the early courses and workshops, but there was more. This organization that has been around for nearly 100 years offered the opportunity to meet like minded people, to share experiences, and to contribute to the organization to make it stronger. Helping PAL grow and most recently making the new building a reality has been extremely rewarding. Sure there have been frustrations, but life is full of them. Seeing the progress has been equally rewarding with creating a new piece of art.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Add more social experiences/opportunities to make PAL a destination.
