Come and spend some time with SQACC making art. Thursday mornings from 10 am to 1 pm we will be having a project-based art class open to the public. Classes move at your own pace, so stop by anytime between 10am and 1pm to start your project.  No registration required.

The projects typically take about 30 to 60 minutes to complete and will change monthly.
