Cool Arts artists and their beeboxes

Today was the perfect day, warm spring sunshine in a farm yard smelling of fresh hay and pennycress. Cool Arts artists bravely ventured into the world of bees, donning suits for protection and carefully hand delivering painted bee boxes; new homes for the honey bees.

The timing of the deliver was most fitting as May 29th marks the official 'Day of the Honeybee". 

Cool Arts artists learn that honeybees are not aggressive and that by moving slowly and remaining calm and respectful of their environment, artists and honeybees can work together in lovely harmony.
