Register Today! Classes start November 1
The Hornell Public Library is offering a free 4-week drawing class series for the young adults of Hornell taught by local artist Craig Prophet. The classes will be held on the following Wednesdays of November from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM: November 1st, November 8th, November 15th, and November 29th. All drawing supplies are provided for free for all participants. This drawing series has limited spots available so a commitment to attending all four classes is required and participants must fall within the age range of twelve to nineteen years old. Call the library to register today at 607-324-1210!
The classes are made possible by the ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes’ 2023 NYSC SCR Community Arts Grant that the library was awarded at the beginning of this year. The library’s director and staff are extremely grateful for these grant funds that have allowed them to provide art classes that are accessible to all by eliminating the financial barriers of registration fees and the cost of supplies for participants. Back in April, local artist Hope Zaccagni led the first installment of this drawing series that was available for both teens and adults. Hope’s students had so much fun learning the fundamentals of sketching and drawing. The library’s Carnegie Room will once again be transformed into an art studio where teens can come together to harness their artistic skills and hopefully make new friends along the way!
Craig Prophet received his B.A. from Alfred University and an M.F.A. from Boston University. He has worked as a fine artist, a college-level and local art instructor, and as an art director and graphic designer for various national and local accounts.

This project is made possible with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes.
