What does our community say about ASCC?

“The class I took at the Art School was intimate and accessible…. I hadn’t taken an art class since I was in college five or six years ago, and so for me, it was a powerful experience…to be told that I could create art, to have others see it and react. I wouldn’t have been able to take this class without the scholarship I received, and I am so, so grateful I had the chance to! …. How lucky am I that someone values the experience of making art enough that they were willing to partially fund my class tuition? I’m looking forward to future classes at ASCC, too.”   – ASCC scholarship recipient

“It’s like a dream come true!” – student in one of our Art in the Library programs (grade 6)

“I am so happy I have found this pocket of creativity in the country!”   – ASCC student

“Clear & creative.  My nephew came home, made another collage and looked up the poem & picture of [Robert] Frost on the computer. Then he explained it to his parents.  Great job.  The kids read the poem, cut out parts & explained why they chose what they chose.” – Elizabeth Smith, Trustee, North Chatham Library

“A terrific & necessary experience…there was a real community in the room as a result of the 2 artists sharing their creative process.”  – ARTalks 2017 attendee

“Learning at ASCC has brought me JOY and expanded my painterly vision.  Thanks so much.” – ASCC student

“I met other artists in the area… I am looking for work currently and it would have been difficult for me to have spent $ on myself in this manner.” – ASCC scholarship recipient

“A great deal of effort when into the designs and it encouraged creativity on multiple levels.  Both the instructor and assistant encouraged and supported the children’s efforts.  They were approachable and clear on the instructions…I was incredibly impressed by the effort that was put in. [The best aspect was] the way it completely captured the story and made it very personal to each child.  Couldn’t be any more pleased with the project from start to finish.”  – Librarian, ASCC’s Community Read Art program (grades 4-8)

“[The best aspect was] the personalized ideas of a ‘landscape you remember’ and including a family photo in the collage. It was beautifully prepared and executed, thank you!  We hope to have this opportunity again.” – Margaret Carlson, Activities at Camphill Ghent regarding ASCC’s “Art & Memories Program”
