Arts Around Altoona
I thought I’d do a little section on my blog here about arts around Altoona. For my first one here, I thought I’d talk about ArtsAltoona. They are a local group that are promoting the arts in our community. I like their message and how they are incorporating a need for our youth to grow in art fields. Recently, they acquired the Simpson Temple Church converting it into an arts based program. Additionally, they are that working with the local school district with an afterschool program and learning pods. Learning pods are spaces that are monoitored for middle and highschool students who have both parents that are working. It is a good way to keep students safe during the pandemic. It fills a need for our community and I’m glad to see a safe place for our youth.
