If you have a child, you need to attend the Montclair Arts Council’s Art Education Open House this Saturday, November 13 at the Montclair Public Library.

Montclair is a pretty artsy town, but many parents and kids don’t know about all the wonderful arts programs available, such as dance, theater, music and fine art classes. The Montclair Arts Council (MAC) was formed in 2005 to enhance Montclair’s reputation a vibrant arts community by advancing the arts, advocating for and supporting artists and cultural organizations, and encouraging economic development through the arts.

The open house will introduce you and your child to the following groups:

Crossover Project
The Clay Studio
Montclair Art Museum (Yard School of Art)

MADLOM (Montclair Academy of Dance and Laboratory of Music)
Studio Kids Art
