SSAA WORKSHOPS 2017 The SSAA Education Committee has developed a calendar of art skill workshops for 2017. Each workshop coordinates its theme with the monthly gallery exhibition. We still need volunteers to help with teaching and assisting in some of the workshops. Cost per workshop for those attending will be $30 + materials fee for a half-day workshop and $45 + materials fee for a full-day workshop.
