Summer Arts Academy

Creativity is the word of the day as some 40 students are painting, drawing and creating wonderful pieces of art this summer.  During the school year, the kids attend Quincy Elementary School.  Thanks to a signature arts grant, the students are spending four weeks at the Children’s Summer Arts Academy.   The final week is being held at the NOTO Arts Center.  The students receive breakfast and lunch each day of the academy.  The academy is free to any Quincy student. 
There is also an after school arts program during the school year for students at Quincy.  The program combines academics and art and usually attracts about 90 kids for the daily two hour program.
