MAY EVENTS--Uptown, Downtown, it's our Town!

May is "Art Wave", Celebrating children’s creative expression through art!  See youth art on display 26 stores Uptown and downtown. PT Artscape provides visual and dramatic arts in the Port Townsend Public Schools, grades K-12. Consortium programs integrate the arts into the regular classrooms, help teachers enhance their curriculum through the arts, expand student access to and experience with the arts, and provide instruction and mentoring to artists who wish to teach their art. The Port Townsend School District is the lead agency for the consortium activities which are funded through a grant from the Washington State Arts Commission. You can support PT Artscape through the “Art Wave” donation jars in select stores; the Port Townsend Food Coop has selected PT Artscape as a recipient for the “Beans for Bags” program in May & June, or purchase a “Daily Bird” from Daily Bird Pottery during May. All proceeds go directly to art education programs in the Port Townsend School District. Click Here to find out more.
