Raves and Reviews - What folks are saying about ACA:

"I'm a mother of a grown child and an artist myself, and the ACA has been one of the highlights of our living here for over 20 years. Can't thank you guys enough for creating such a fun, inspiring, and valuable community resource." Jill M, Arlington

"You should know that S. woke Saturday morning disappointed that there was no camp that day. And on Sunday when I said he was going back to camp on Monday, he wanted to make sure it was "ARTS camp" because "I really miss art." !!! We were shocked to see him not only come out on stage, but with a big smile and a wave! Thank you, thank you!!!" Lisa, mother of S (age 6) Cambridge

"What a great way to spend a Friday night! I was tired from a stressful week of work, but the mala making workshop turned out to be just what I needed. Connie created a welcoming space and provided us with so many beads to choose from, so each of us could decide on her own colors and patterns. Making my mala was a very mediative process, but it was also nice to converse with the other like-minded women in the group. I can't remember the last time I made something creative in a group and I forgot what a great feeling of community that can be. Thanks for this great opportunity! Kate, Meditation Bead Worskhop

"I want to thank you and the staff at Arlington Center for the Arts for my daughter's experience this summer. Every staff member has been kind, talented and prepared - and helped nurture my daughter's love of invention and creation. She's deeply enjoyed the CIT program - a nice mix of creative work, and care for others. My daughter has awakened every day, excited about what she'll do today at ACA, and looking forward to more and more. ACA is one of Arlington's jewels - and a great place for an early-teenage child to explore responsibility and creativity." Mark, father of A (age 14)
