Hot off the press…
Eureka Springs School of the Arts (ESSA) broke ground today to build its new Wood Studio. Board members and staff all showed up with shovels and cameras. The wood studio is a long awaited addition to ESSA’s campus and a realized dream for one of our founders Doug Stowe. Thanks to this new building ESSA will now be able to offer many new and exciting wood classes. Peggy Kjelgaard, ESSA’s Executive Director, stated that architect (and Board Member) Dave McKee (and son Max McKee), along with the wisdom of Doug Stowe (ESSA Founder, Board Member, and Wood Studio expert) have been an amazing team to work with in designing the studio—a dream come true.
