Peeps will be on sale Monday

April proves to be just as busy as March and we know how hard it is to be in a dark building during this beautiful weather. I would like to point out that we have air-conditioning!

I would like to invite you to submit some ARTS/West experiences to our blog by emailing at We will be pleased to post any thing positive, because it's an ARTS/West blog and that is how we role.

Don't forget to contact Kelly Lawrence about the home school art class. They met this Wednesday and it was a real treat. Some little bunny even brought the A/W staff Easter eggs she had colored.

In case you are wondering, all ARTS/West programs and rentals are cancelled Saturday, April 15 and Sunday April 16!
