September at FYA

…and we’re BACK. For many of us, fall is a time for new routines. Whether you are going back to school or work, or watching your neighbors juggle their families out the door in the morning, the studio is the place for you to add something new and creative to your weekly schedule.

Fall Registration is going on NOW. There are some pretty cool things going on, including some special (and affordable!) Toddler/Preschool Programs for small ones who want to create and play. Adult day and evening classes pick up again this fall as well, as does our Teen Open Studio. Great new options like Bookmaking and Marbling round out our programs for kids.

Victorian Fair Day is September 10th, and TWO big community events are happening at FYA. The first is our annual collaboration with the Melrose Alliance Against Violence. This year’s theme for the Walk and Vigil is “You are Not Alone” and we have a special community project going on all day during the fair. As per usual, the end result of our community efforts will be on display at the Vigil on October 22nd.

ALSO, our studio is hosting a special storytelling event sponsored by Melrose Organizes for REAL Equality (MORE) from 2:30-3:30. Come and hear stories and spoken word presented by fellow Melrosians in this first of it’s kind community event.

Happy Fall to you,
Kris and the FYA Team
