summer is coming!

We are excited to announce that the schedules for our summer arts programs have been published!

We’ll be running two programs this summer. The first is Youth Arts Arise, which will be held between Monday, August 5th and Friday, August 9th. This program is for children ages 11 to 16 and completely free to all participants in Somerville and the surrounding communities!

The second program is Arts Discovery Week, which is for children between ages 5 and 10. We’re excited to announce that we will be expanding Arts Discovery Week this summer! The program will run for 4 weeks (Monday through Friday, July 29th and August 23rd), and we’ll be expanding our capacity, adding more teachers and workshops throughout to work with smaller groups of children.

Enrollment for these programs will begin on Wednesday, March 20th, and forms will be available through the website or in the Armory Cafe. In the meantime you can find more information here.

We hope to see you this summer!

Leadership Transition / Future Changes

Not sure how to lead this announcement, so jumping right in…

We’re announcing today that our Executive Director, Lea Ruscio, will be leaving the organization at the end of November 2019.  Lea has held down the leadership role here for the past 6 years, and we will be sorry to see her go!

But never fear, we’re working within the organization and together with our Advisory Committee on the transition plan and recruitment process to find a new Executive Director.  Details will be posted here and on social media as the process unfolds.

We look forward to continuing well into the future as your go-to spot for local arts, cultural, and community activities!
