FREE Classes & Workshops at the S.H.A.C.K.
As many of you know, the SHACK has been offering free events, classes and workshops since we began on January 19, 2013 at our studio. We are 100% volunteer-run and have been operating on the dedication of faithful volunteers who have given hundreds of hours of their time. We are also grateful for the kindness of our supporters who have donated art supplies and funds that have kept us operating these free programs for the past 3 months.
We will continue to offer many more FREE programs, however we will ALSO offer other classes and workshops on a “suggested donation” basis. The reason we ask for a “suggested donation” is not to pay an executive director or staff salary because we are volunteer run. The suggested donation is to pay the teacher leading the workshop and to cover our overhead costs, as our space was not donated, in order to CONTINUE to offer free programs. As stated since day #1, we will also continue to offer free art/music/pet therapy sessions to help bring healing to the community through the arts.
