Special Announcement

The one constant is change...how true that is!

There are changes happening, and as of July 31, we will no longer offer art classes at Corridor Arts location in Solon.* We apologize for any inconvenience and want to let you know the reason for this change.

Corridor Arts instructor Susan Kennicott is currently building a home in Florida and she will move there when it's completed. It's Iowa's loss and Florida's gain, as she is a wonderful artist, instructor, & encourager.

*The good news is that art lessons will still be happening: 
Susan Kennicott will teach private art lessons until her move. Lianne Westcot will teach at a couple different venues which are currently being finalized for fall. Please see our Instructor Page for contact information and to find the artist's blogs for news & announcements. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or would like to schedule lessons.
