Hello Parents!  
Thank you for visiting the art room at Back To School Night!  It was a pleasure to meet with you.  Some of you mentioned that your children enjoy art so much that you think they would be interested in participating in art outside of school too.  Below is a list featuring a few extra art opportunities that are pretty local.  These are merely suggestions, as I do not personally know the people who run these programs.
