This summer, Threshold Arts is partnering with the Rochester Public Library and Gallery 24 to provide a series of free community art classes at the Castle! Work with three local artists to learn a variety of new techniques and take home an original creation along with your newfound skills.
Classes are held from 6 – 8 pm on the fourth Wednesday of the month in the Community Studio on the third floor of the Castle. Courses are free and all materials are provided, but space is limited and all participants must pre-register.
