Rain pushed folks attending Spring Art Day at The Art Bazaar inside Saturday morning.

That was OK with organizers because it just gave customers a chance to see more of their works.

Ginny Volkart, a co-op member said despite having to move inside, artists were still able to find spaces in the bazaar to demonstrate their skills.

"We're drawing people in," Volkart said. "It is a good day. It's still spring."

One artist spun raw materials into yarn. A second used a different device, a drop spindle, to create yarns. Another demonstrated works in clay. In another corner, a woman demonstrated pencil drawing. Another made seed pods out of newspapers. One artist created watercolor masterpieces outside the front door.

The bazaar, located at 1507 E. McCarty St., is somewhat on the edge of downtown, so members try to think of ways to get people out to their spaces, Volkart said.

"We have a little bit of everything," Volkart said. "We have a good time, because we're all like-minded people."
