City grant helps fledgling arts school


CANO members will be eligible for discounts to Carriage House Art Studio classes, the release said. And studio space and equipment, such as pottery wheels, may be rented on a short-term.

When UCCCA, predecessor of CANO, downsized in 2009, many of the classes in the Carriage House became unfunded, the release said.

 “CANO is delighted that they approached us to be the destination for this new business, serving the arts community and helping fulfill our mission to offer artists of all ages and experience levels an opportunity to share, grow and create,’’ D’Amico said in a prepared statement.

Local artist Charles Bremer coordinated efforts of the CANO board and representatives from CHAS to establish conditions that made a long-term lease possible, the release said.

Plans call for offering a range of visual art classes including ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, stained glass, sculpture, printmaking, basket-making, fiber arts, photography and electronic arts, the release said. Also, workshops in theater arts, including

improvisation and summer camps for kids and teens, will be offered.

Courses will be taught by area artists and art teachers, many with past experience at the Carriage House. Assisting will be student

interns and volunteers from Hartwick College and the State University College at Oneonta.
