Yakima, WASH--When budget cuts hit, programs for the arts are the first to go. But Allied Arts of Yakima Valley doesn't accept that... They don't believe art is optional.
And its with that attitude the organization launched their summer programs this week. Wednesday they held a summer kick off event where kids came and did art projects including coloring and origami.
If you missed Wednesday's kick off for the summer children's programs, allied arts is having another one Saturday. They'll be at the Albert sons on 40th and Tieton from 11 to 4.
