Youth Art Camp Week 5: July 20-14, 2020

COVID-19 UPDATE (as of June 10th, 2020):

We at the gallery have been following the steady increase of daily COVID cases in our community and state and have made the tough but responsible decision to cancel Summer Art Camp. Those who have preregistered and paid will receive a full refund. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility during these uncertain times, but the safety of your children and our staff comes first. We look forward to serving our youth and adults through a wonderful array of art classes this fall. MORNING CAMPS
