The CommUnity Arts Garage is celebrating the change of the season with new events and studio hours. Come and create with us!  We are looking for a few dedicated volunteers who are interested in hosting regular weekly open studios. This is a great opportunity to get more involved with a thriving skill-share studio and have an opportunity to work in a variety of mediums. Open studios can take a wide-range of forms, from drop-in ceramics to collage and beyond! You don't have to be an expert or a teacher, just be willing to be present and be an ambassador for grassroots education and community participation. Contact Em at [email protected] to let us know you're interested!
