For the second consecutive year, the Spokane Art School took first place in the Visual Art Classes category in “Best for Families,” a readers’ poll conducted by Family Magazine.
That means Family Magazine readers chose the Spokane Art School over all other area arts venues, based on the school’s wideranging program of creative art classes and workshops for youth, adults and families, said school director Maureen Davidson.
This is the local magazine’s second-annual “Best for Families” reader’s poll.
