What’s new at the KAC?
2014 has been a great year so far at the KAC! The beginning of the year has been busy and this summer will be busy, as well! We have our Summer Arts Program with classes beginning on June 9th and running through August 8th.
A new addition this year is our “Next Step Art Workshops” for students who are looking to take their art to the next level. NSAW is a one- week workshop with an intense focus on a particular medium, giving students the chance to develop a strong foundation that will move them forward in their art development. We are offering two workshops this summer, a Watercolor Workshop with Kathy Coombs and a Ceramics Workshop with Kristen Kennedy. We’ve also added “Early Start with Art” for ages 3-4 as well as our Mommy & Me classes for ages 1.5-3. Check out the enclosed summer
schedule for all of our exciting class offerings!
We’re also thrilled to be a driving force behind the first ever Downtown Hanford Art Stroll, an event that will coincide with our Yosemite Renaissance Opening on June 6th! Check out the rest of our newsletter for updates from Curator John Robinson on our exciting exhibit schedule, as well as Guild President Karen Anderson on the upcoming Gala. We look forward to seeing you at the Art Stroll, our Opening Reception and the Summer Arts Program, too!
