Dear Friends,


Here at FYACS, we are creative thinkers. Right now we are thinking of ways to be creative together…safely. 


Our building will continue to be closed to the general public until at least April 6th. This global crisis is changing rapidly, and our local community is adjusting moment to moment. The Board of FYACS has decided to make decisions two weeks at a time.

We have been sending ongoing communication to currently enrolled artists. Each class has received either an opportunity to pick up supplies and project ideas for at home classes and/or opportunities to have a Zoom class check in this week!

If you or your child is currently enrolled in a class, keep an eye on your inbox as we will continue to send a emails to you with alternative class plans for the coming weeks. 

We have been posting daily creative challenges on FB and Instagram and LOVE the response we’ve gotten! Please keep it up, and take time to look at what others in your creative community are doing, and share with friends! We can all use some creative diversions.

As a fledgling organization, we are taking it 14 days at a time. As we navigate this together, take care of each other, and attempt to keep each other safe, we at FYACS thank you for your patience, flexibility, and support.  

How can you best support your community arts center now?

Become a member: It will help us cover expenses now and give you access to discounts all year long. 

Make Donation in any amount: We’ve set up a Donate button on our FB page where you can donate any amount with minimal charge to us. 

Let’s take care of each other. We’ll get through this.

In Kindness,
Kris Rodolico
Executive Director

MEANWHILE, we now have 15 creative challenges posted on FB for ALL of you! Keep following along, and post/send pictures of your work. There’s a new one every day!

Torn paper art!

Use any paper you have in your house, but no scissors. Glue is helpful but not necessary. Work as a team, or individually. 


We want pictures! Email them to us, share them on your favorite social media (tag us please!) or post them in the comments on our upcoming posts. 


Come on, people. Let’s art this one out!
