An evening to support arts education!
Wednesday, June 20 | Home of Michael & Shari Cantor | 5:30PM – 7:30PM
The Greater Hartford Arts Council invites you to our Summer Soirée at the beautiful home of Michael and Shari Cantor to support Neighborhood Studios, our arts education program for local teens. Mix and mingle as you enjoy sparkling wine, delicious food, and hear from special guest speaker, Lara Davis, Arts Education Manager of the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.
Why Support Neighborhood Studios?
During the six-week summer apprenticeship program, students receive hands on instruction in an artistic medium, as well as career skills training to prepare them for today’s creative workplace. Each apprentice also receives a weekly stipend so they don’t have to choose between a quality arts education and a summer job. Please help make their summer of arts education possible!
