A Note from Becky~

POOF!!! And just like that summer vacation has come to an end! All year we look forward to summer camps and then they go by so quickly! Hosting over 400 kids here at CALC, on south mountain at Diakon Wilderness Center, CPYB, the Trout Gallery, the Dickinson College campus, the YWCA, and Hope Station is absolutely energizing. It is incredible to watch the kids create but also to see them expressing themselves, learning what they are capable of and building friendships through art. You give this gift to these children. Every donor to CALC is changing the lives of our youth—thank you!

With fall on the horizon, we are excited to continue providing youth and adults alike the opportunity to grow, achieve, and reflect though the arts. It is going to be another full year at CALC with robust class offerings, interesting exhibits, and
increased collaborative projects through The CALC Collaborative, and as always--- fun and very special events! I hope you will share in all of this with us!

Mark your calendars:

  • mARTini Auction, Saturday, November 17

  • Valentine’s Day at Midway Bowling, Thursday, February 14,

  • Empty Bowls, Benefitting Project SHARE, Monday, March 18

  • From the heART celebration, June date to be announced soon!
