Next Session: Wednesday, March 28, 2018 / 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

View is holding its first Home School Day. The fee for this event is $6/$3 Members per student and $10/$5 Members for the second adult/teacher.

This day is designed to introduce home school families to the variety of art and ceramic workshops that are offered at View.  During the event families will be able to explore our galleries with a self-directed scavenger hunt.  As well as explore the young entrepreneurial craft fair set up in Gould Hall.  Bring extra cash to help support our young business people.

The young entrepreneurial craft fair is made up of students in grades K-12 who have an idea, product, or service they would like to present to the public or sell. Students need to rent space for a booth in Gould Hall where they can sell their wares or services for that day.

Please contact Cynthia at cbrownell@viewarts.org for more information to reserve a booth for the young businessperson.  Once you contact Cynthia, she will send a business package for your young entrepreneurial to help set up their booth and practice.   The booth fee is $3.00 to set up a 10 feet x 10 feet space.
