SAAC is thrilled to announce its class lineup for spring 2022, and now is the time to sign up your kids for some fun and learning. Classes will begin the week of January 24-28 and will fill up quickly. Visit the SAAC Class Registration Page  and register now!

Many of SAAC’s long-time instructors are back this year as well as some new faces that have also joined the roster. They are all looking forward to spending time with the kids and having fun while learning new things. In fact, many artists who have come to show their works at SAAC as well as theatre directors that have helped with SAAC performances remember their teachers and their time as students at SAAC as the inspiration for their life-long love of their craft. If your child has an interest in the arts, then a classroom setting, which helps make learning fun, is the best way to get them started. SAAC has numerous classes and productions in which your children can participate.

Maria Villegas, Michaela Wise Gross, Katie Harwell and Nicole McAdams will lead the visual arts classes from Pre-K through 12th grade. They all have exciting things planned for the spring to inspire the kids to make art!

Ballet classes will once again be led by Stephanie Lowrey along with help from Abbey Williams. Ballet is offered for Pre-K through 12th grade. Stephanie has been with SAAC for many years and always creates wonderful, original productions for the children.

Fearless leader “Mr. Mike” (Mike Means) is back again to champion his computer arts kids with classes in graphic arts as well as taking kids through a new and fascinating look at the science world through a class entitled “Art Meets Science.” His classes are for kids K- 8th grades.

The theatre world will no doubt gain some new stars this season from SAAC’s theatre classes. If you have a budding star on your hands then sign them up! Offered for Pre-K – 12th grade, classes are led by talented SAAC veterans Cassie Hickman, Hannah Davis and Lynn Gunter along with newcomer Madelyn Poss. Additionally, youth theatre, directed by Hannah Davis, will produce the two-act play “The Enchanted Bookshop” for grades 2-8. Inclusion in this production will be by auditions which will be held January 18 and 20.

Also offered again this spring is a class for 1-3 year olds accompanied by a parent. “Mommy and Me Thursdays” will meet the first Thursday of the month.
