For now, we will conduct art classes weekly on Wednesdays beginning June 22nd at 12:30pm at the Hope Center in Marysville

If you would like to sponsor a child to begin the classes, your tax deductible donation can be made to the Hope Center in Marysville Ohio, with “Union County Art Club” in the memo. Any gift will help us get paper, pencils, paint, canvas, etc. in the hands of children who want to learn!

Wednesdays beginning June 22, 2017
