ESSEX, NY –Thanks to grant funding and community support, the Adirondack Art Association (AAA) will be offering all of their childrens' art classes for free this summer. As a non-profit community arts organization, the AAA is dedicated to providing arts education and fine art exhibitions in the community of Essex and the surrounding areas.
Four children’s art classes will be offered through out the 2017 summer season, with classes taking place Saturdays from 1:00-2:30 pm on July 8, July 22, August 5, and August 19.
