Brief Summer Arts Festival History

The Allegany Arts Association is a non-profit (501c3) organization founded in 1982 to promote participation in the arts by all citizens of arts programming and a variety of arts experiences for all ages. It is supported by individual and corporate members and local grants.The Allegany Arts Newsletter is published quarterly.

 

One of our main goals is to offer FREE art programs to the students of Allegany County throughout the county. Your participation, either by hosting a site or teaching a class, lets students experience fine art right here where they live.

Summer isn’t too far off to start setting up schedules and classes. If you’re interested in hosting a class, teaching a class or know someone who is, please contact me at the email addresses below. We work with locations and schedules to fit the needs of each community.

 

The Summer Arts Festival programming runs from the end of the school year until the beginning of the next school year, typically July through August but some classes begin in late June. Class schedules are made to fit the needs of each community, the availability of the instructor and availability of a public location. Participating locations could include local libraries, community centers, schools, fire halls, churches and fraternal organizations. To keep costs at a minimal, free space or donated space is best and must be open to the public. Private property is not allowed.

 

Instructors are paid an hourly rate plus cost of materials. A Class Outline, age range for students and number of students if class size needs to be limited should be provided. Classes could include drawing, painting, printing, book art, collage, music, movement and so much more.

 

If you are interested or know someone who is, please contact me at:

Sincerely yours,
