Extension Education Association of Austin County, a direct part of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, sponsored a cultural arts opportunity for its members and friends to paint the summer heat away. Deborah Kollmann of West End EEA instructed and hosted the event at the Extension Office. At the end of the workshop, each member left with a barn quilt block painting.
