Did you know Georgetown is home to several schools devoted to the visual and performing arts? It’s true: The Miller School of Art, Seattle Sculpture Atelier, and Georgetown Atelier for visual arts, The Seattle Drum School for music, and SANCA for trapeze arts… not to mention the many private instructors in the neighborhood (such as Le’Objects for the Home, Sage Artistry, Waxing Impressions, Mary Tudor, Roving Gallery, Georgetown Arts & Cultural Center, Krab Jab Studio, and more).
The Georgetown Art Attack art walk celebrates our neighborhood spirit on Saturday, September 8th from 6 – 9 pm with upbeat art, delish food, and fantastic fun, sure to enrich the soul before you hit the books (or the traffic) the following Monday morning.
