Exciting news! Our washrooms at ArtStarts are now gender-neutral!   What does this mean? The washrooms at ArtStarts are no longer separated into “men’s” and “women’s.” Yay! We now have: One washroom with multiple stalls – it has a purple door! One washroom with a single stall, a urinal, and an outside door that locks – the door is green!

How can bringing a professional artist into the classroom benefit you and your students?
