August News and Fall Registration

It’s hard to talk about fall when there’s still more summer to go. But, you’ve been asking for registration info and updates on our status, so take a minute to get the good news.

Go Fund Me Update: And the verdict is….close enough! You’ve graciously helped us shrink the rent gap enough that we will take it the rest of the way. We are NOT raising rates for our final year at 416 Main Street. Thank you.

Introducing Follow Your Art Community Studios, a newly incorporated nonprofit. By the end of August we will have a website where you can read about our expanded mission, our search for a new space, upcoming fundraising events and, of course, the infamous DONATE button. Look for it in September.

Registration for Fall is up and ready to go! For toddlers through adults, there’s some old favorites and new classes ready for fall. A list of Offerings for Kids is here, and Adults is here.

Do you know about Art in the Park? At Volunteer Park, on August 26th, at 10 am, children from all over Melrose are welcome to bring their summer artwork to put on display in a community art show! Organized by Andrea Razi-Thomas, this is a great day to celebrate creativity. Bring a snack to share. A FB event will be created and we’ll link to it on our page soon.

FINALLY…Thanks to Chiara, we are now on Twitter and Instagram @fyamelrose. Follow along!

Now, go do something summery.
Kris and the FYA Team
