Call For Entries

It’s In-grained! A unique art form has developed recently and has formed an artistic group calling themselves the wood-grainers! Anyone can be a grainer. This exhibit will feature artwork created on or out of wood! Many images can surface in wood grains and this exhibit will showcase those subtle and not-so subtle results! Carved, painted, stained, whittled, and burned, and other tech- niques will be displayed. Enter your pieces in this judged, non-juried exhibit! Best of Show, second and third places will be determined by a panel of artists and wood workers.

ArtReach in-a-box

While our weekly ArtReach Classes are taking a hiatus, creativity cannot be stopped! As you know, the arts are crucial to learning! Students with access to arts education: score higher SATs, obtain higher GPAs, and experience lower drop out rates. Art also improves critical thinking and math skills. Now we can bring our art program to you. ArtReach (in a box) will be available beginning in November. Each box will have the equivalent of 3-4 complete projects or lessons, (similar to in-class learning) and full instructions. The boxes are age and gender neutral and suggested age range is 6 years (with help) and up! The first ArtReach (in-a-box) will be available mid-November.

Past ArtReach Projects

What’s even better? The cost for ArtReach (in a box) is less expensive than in-class. Each box runs $25 per month. Shipping is available for an added fee. Limited, need-based scholarships are available, please inquire. Please use the button to download the sign up form. You can pay by check or credit card using the pay button.
