. Fun-a-Day — The idea is to do something you think is fun or interesting, do it every day in February and document it in someway. It could be drawing, photography, swimming, pillow making or anything you can imagine. The project can either be 28 individual pieces, or one piece. For example, you could make a drawing every day, or you could make one drawing and work on it every day. When all is said and done, there will be an art opening of everyone’s projects on Friday, March 16, at Sugar City, 1239 Niagara St., Buffalo. If you are interested in participating in Fun-a-Day, visit tinyurl.com/buffalofunaday2018 and fill out the form.
