From Sarah Rye Bliss, Executive & Artistic Director of SBAP..... Happy New Year from my family to yours! I would like to thank so many of you for your continued support of our unique community based arts program. It has been with your support that SBAP has flourished and grown to become a creative destination for South City. 2013 was an exciting year for us as we opened our NEW POTTERY STUDIO, launched a new program for all ages called OPEN STUDIO, as well as a great partnership with ALIVE STL Fashion Week! All of us here at SBAP are looking forward to 2014 as it is our 5th Anniversay being open to the public! Stay tuned as we have an exciting year planned that we think families, kids, teens, adults, individuals, and groups of ALL ages will want to be a part of! Throughout the coming year we plan to add more pottery wheels to the studio, expand our Gallery and Shop with Monthly Art Openings as well as additional 6 week workshops for kids, teens, and adults......
