February 2016 news!

News from Art Student Academy

So much has been happening and is going to happen in 2016! So a recap:
What has happened: We previously shared that after 4 years of holding many of our art classes in downtown Wake Forest, we moved all of our classes back to our professional art studios outside Franklinton, NC. That address is 2109 Old Mill Farm Rd, Franklinton, NC 27525.
Secondly, we have partnered with Vance Granville Community College in both the Henderson and Louisburg locations to teach some of their art classes. Plus, after the VGCC Small Business Center sent me to the NC REAL (rural entrepreneurship through action learning) institute in Blowing Rock last year, I am excited to be teaching the SECOND Professional Art and Craft Entrepreneurship program through them! My first series of graduate students last fall was a great success and was held at the Vance Granville Farmer's Market.
