What's Happening at TAG! December 2023



The holidays are in full swing and we have plenty of classes and events to get you into the holiday spirit at The Arts Garage. Do not forget to check out our amazing artists booths for the perfect piece of art to give (or keep) this holiday season.

Just a reminder that November 1, 2023 through January 30, 2024 we are collecting donations for both the Humane Society of Ottawa County and at our Giving Tree for those in need of warm gloves, socks, etc. A list of items that are needed/accepted is listed on our website at www.gpcaac.org.

Stop into TAG any day from 11am until 4pm (Unless Closed) and make a donation. Our furry friends and humans alike thank you!

We also have GPCAAC t-shirts on sale at TAG! Short sleeves are $25, long sleeves are $30 and come in sizes S-XL. Support the arts and the GPCAAC's mission, while looking cool in our shirt!
