In our every changing world with the coronavirus, school and group closings we sincerely appreciate your flexibility as the situation develops and changes daily. I'm working with coordinators to reschedule upcoming WRAP's for April and possible May...(to be determined).We will be in touch with more information when we have more information. Our biggest concern is for your health and safety! The best thing for everyone currently to do is to stay home, not panic and CREATE ART. Please use our Wisconsin Regional Art Facebook page as a platform to share your current creations during these interesting times. Let's inspire each other. Again, thank you for your flexibility as your health and safety again is our main concern.
If you have specific questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
