Our Classes and Events

Our primary mission is to bring art to the community.  One way we do this is to offer our services and talent and by giving you the opportunity to open and explore your creative chi. Our classes are taught by experts in their field who enjoy teaching and watching students take the artful journey and be surprised at what they can do.

Frankie The Dog – Children’s Interactive Storytelling

The next Food Truck Friday is August 2 (5 pm to 8 pm).  At 7 pm, Pilar Kirkpatrick, author of the children’s book, Frankie the Dog, will perform her telling of Frankie’s story to the kids at Food Truck Friday.  Pilar has read from her Big Frankie Book at schools and bookstores everywhere and is a big hit with the kids. After the story, the kids can color a page from Frankie’s coloring book and have their art displayed at the gallery in the SAA Art Center (right across the street from Food Truck Friday on Pilgrim Mill Rd.  

 

Children’s Gallery and Reception

The children’s art will be displayed during our regular hours  – Thursday thru Friday, 11 am to 5 pm, and on Saturday, August 10, we’ll hold a special reception for the kids during which we will present prizes and ribbons to recognize our little artists.

Be part of the fun and come to Food Truck Friday, August 2!
