Registration
Registration and pre-payment of fees are required for enrollment in classes and workshops, and some of our classes require extra supplies.  Be sure to ask staff if there is a supply list that goes along with your class.  Many of our classes fill-up quickly, so we encourage our patrons to register early and at least one week in advance for all classes - youth or adults!  Register onsite at the Garden and Arts Center during regular hours or call 806-767-3724.
