The Arts Academy at the South Arkansas Arts Center has announced the spring schedule! According to executive director Beth Burns, the SAAC’s focus for the educational academy is on families and quality arts experiences. “We want to elevate the student and the family. In the last few years have added classes and changed the schedule so there are more offerings. Students don’t have to make choices, and it’s easy on the family.”
