Our neighbor on the hill and friend, Hill Center, offer Knife Skill classes several times every year. To tie in with their classes, our challenge art theme for August is Knives Out.

Our artists will be posting images/artwork with the theme: Knives Out Aug.1-31. Hill Center staff members will chose ONE favorite “knife” image and award the artist a $20 gift certificate, announced the first week of September. You can reinterpret knives in many ways!
