Salt Valley Arts's picture
Salt Valley Arts
Salt valley arts builds and nurtures the creativity of the individual and the local community; we provide engaging opportunities for learning, teaching, sharing and appreciating the arts. Salt Valley Arts arose in the Fall of 2016 as a result of the closing of the former art center in Saline (Two Twelve Arts Center). With only five months between the announcement and the closing of Two Twelve, a steering committee, working with several community representatives, located a new venue in which to teach our classes in the facility owned by EHM-Senior Solutions in Saline. Our space on 400 W. Russel provides 2,100 sq ft in which to teach and have events. It is leased from EHM-Senior Solutions for a minimal amount and EHM-Senior Solutions supports us by covering our facility expenses as well as providing parking and ADA accessible access to our space. EHM-Senior Solutions also houses a diverse community that has whole-heartedly embraced the arts. In addition to our public classes, we provide classes for EHM residents and their families. You'll find more information about our classes and events on ourwebsite
