Art Classes & Painting Part 3 (Dates Set )

July 7th & 8th (Saturday & Sunday)

Those are the 2 days the class will happen. YEAH!!!!!

So over the next 3 weeks, the hunt for the students will begin. Since we are talking only 15, I am being selective and making sure that each can benefit from the mix of technical art teaching and the business side of it.

The Yebo Art Gallery, which is pretty much the most known art gallery, although there are only a couple galleries placed around the country and no National Museum of any kind, will be leading the classes with their ArtReach program (See their recently completed fundraiser here

Please visit their site to learn more about Yebo.

So this is all very exciting since two more Social Centers will be more attractive to students & the community when its complete.

That all the news happening here, so far.

More details to come.
