Franklin Street Gallery Receives Grant to Offer Free Art Classes Featured

ARTSLogoFranklin Street Gallery was awarded a $1,600 Community Arts Grant by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes for the Gallery’s All Access Art series, entering its fourth year in 2017.

All Access Art is a weekday program offering drawing, watercolor, and ceramics classes instructed by professional artists in the Finger Lakes region. Students range in ages from 8 to 70 and have included home schooled students, retirees, and people with developmental disabilities learning and creating in an inclusive and positive environment. The Community Arts Grant covers instructor and supply fees, so there is no cost to students. The classes fill quickly and often have a waiting list for enrollment.

In 2016, All Access Art student, Andrew LaVere, gave a presentation to the Horseheads Kiwanis club about autism and his participation in the program. His father, Richard LaVere, noted, “Andrew has attended many of the workshops at Franklin Street Gallery, creating everything from ceramics to amazing watercolors. The staff and instructors are first-class.” The Kiwanis club made a generous donation to Franklin Street Gallery to support continued programming for adults with developmental disabilities.

Franklin Street Gallery is operated by The Arc of Schuyler, a not-for-profit organization providing supports to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. All Access Art classes begin in January 2017.
