WE LOVE OUR SUMMER STAFF! Megan Stein and Tiffany Robertson have been so dedicated to help make Harcourt House more presentable.
We have made quite a few upgrades this summer. Its amazing what a slap of paint and some elbow grease will do. We have a handful of touch ups we will be doing before the summer is over so look forward to some exciting changes!

“THE BEFORE AND AFTERS YOU CAN TRUST!” Stacey

Have lunch with us!

Could not make it to the artist talk? Want to learn more about the artists process, concept and/or medium?

Every new exhibit Harcourt House will be holding lunch talks to help explain and promote discussion on the artists intention and execution.
This is also a chance to learn more about Harcourt House’s exhibition programming.

Coffee and tea provided.
See you at lunch!

FALL EDUCATION:
Fall is quickly approaching and we are prepared with an amazing line-up of Art Education Workshops and Classes. On September 14 and 15 from 10am – 3pm Wenda Salomons will be teaching a Pinhole Camera Workshop! This is a great opportunity to learn how to take photos with a pinhold camera, develop your own photos in a darkroom, and learn the construction of the camera. Keep an eye out for the Harcourt Education Newsletter!

Check out our website for more information on this workshop and many other classes.
