It’s been an exciting semester at Manor Arts.  The Portfolio students all got into their first choice of art high schools and all of our other students are making lovely work and having fun. So are we.

Time to start gearing up for the Spring now.  SPRING REGISTRATION has begun at Manor Arts and we’d love to include your child in our classes.

Keep in mind that spring session classes fill up very quickly and some are already full so let us know soon if you want to be sure to get a spot.
