The immediate goal is to offer two to three classes per month. With more administrative support, the North Country Arts Council can run more classes, but is limited for the moment by the amount of volunteer hours available to review proposals, market opportunities, track registrations and assist in running classes. If you have interest and ability in these areas and would like to help, contact Kari Robertson at Arts on the Square is located in the Franklin Building on Public Square in Watertown.
