Oneida County Tourism is celebrating National Travel and Tourism Week now through May 9th. You can celebrate with virtual #CNYGetaways all week long. One place known for amazing art here in CNY is the Kirkland Art Center.

The Kirkland Art Center was established in 1960 in the village of Clinton. For its beginnings, it used the second floor of the town library as a meeting place. The KAC is now an active, regional, multi-arts center, located in an old church right off the village green.

KAC has become a major cultural force in central New York and through cooperation with other cultural institutions has developed a network of services and opportunities for artists and art lovers of all disciplines.

One of the many amazing classes offered at The Kirkland Art Center is Wheel Throwing with Justin Mastrangelo.

“Wheel Throwing” - (4 Weeks, 3 hours each day)

Enjoy the peace of mind working with clay and learning how to make pottery by hand on the potter’s wheel. Justin will guide you step-by-step as you create mugs, bowls, vases, and vessels. If you’ve been curious about clay, come and make some magic of your very own."

The KAC offers Adult Art classes, teen art classes, kids art classes, dance programs, fitness programs, local concerts, and more. You can learn more right on their website, or by visiting them in Clinton when the Coronavirus pandemic has slowed down.
