"TAG After Hours" on July 7 at TAG!

The Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council is excited to announce a special event to celebrate arts and artists in Ottawa County during "TAG After Hours" on Thursday July 7, 2022 from 6-8pm.

EVERYONE is welcome to check out the amazing artists hub that is The Arts Garage (TAG), located just steps away from downtown Port Clinton and beautiful Lake Erie in the old city garage at 317 W. Perry Street.

The Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council, in collaboration and partnership with the City of Port Clinton, created TAG in January 2021.

TAG is the home of more than a dozen artists studios, a gallery, classroom/workshop space and entertainment area for artists from around Ottawa County and beyond.

This gives the GPCAAC a physical home, and helps bring to fruition years of hard work by our council, members, volunteers and local governments.

Recently the GPCAAC was officially awarded $100,000 toward improvements to TAG, as will be written into the State of Ohio's Capital Budget next year.

There's plenty to celebrate with this big announcement and we would like to take the time to celebrate this amazing community who helps bring our dreams to life!

"Flip Those Fairy Tales" on July 9 at TAG!

Do you ever think the Wolf from Three Little Pigs got a bad rap? Maybe you think Cinderella's stepsisters were simply misunderstood? How about that the witch's gingerbread house from Hansel and Gretel was a set-up?

Do we have the perfect workshop for your 2nd-4th grader coming up!

Wear your favorite costume and join us for "Flip Those Fairy Tales" at The Arts Garage on Saturday July 9 from 1-3pm.

Participants will write, make-up and perform a fairy tale on their own terms. This is a great opportunity for students who like to write and create.

As with all our children's programming, there is NO COST for Ottawa County students, thanks to a generous donation by Commodore Perry Federal Credit Union.
