Youths invited to Kent arts program
The Kent Historical Society is accepting registration for its summer Art Enrichment Program.
Classes will begin June 26 in the barn, an indoor/outdoor space on the museum’s Seven Hearths property, facing gardens and a woodland that will be used as extended classroom space.
