PRICELESS: The 2016 ACE Art Sale featured, in top photo, mosaics and acrylic paintings by ACE students. This year's event will also include a wide range of teacher and student artwork for sale.

SARASOTA, Nov. 21, 2017The Adult & Community Enrichment program of Sarasota County Schools offers lifelong learners a wide range of experiences. Its arts programs are among the most popular classes, representing 40 percent of its offerings. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 6, ACE will celebrate the showcase and sell creations by its art teachers and students in time for holiday gift-giving at its fourth annual Art Sale. The event will be held at Suncoast Technical College, 4748 Beneva Road in Sarasota, in the center lobby of Building 3.

“This sale is an annual highlight for all the ACE staff and students,” said Laura Trubac, program manager. “There is so much creative energy when so many talented art students come together, offering their wares. We all do some holiday shopping, having fun as we choose from affordable and one-of-a kind art creations.”

The sale will include a large selection of handmade, original, reasonably priced artwork, including ceramics, paintings, fiber art, photography, baskets, jewelry and much more. A portion of the proceeds will help support the ACE Art Program and the ACE Scholarship Program.

This year, ACE instructor Barbara Harrison will offer a free demo session, “Wall Sculpture Creations.” Harrison uses non-traditional materials, which makes her methods and media unique. The one-hour session will be held in room 104 at 1 p.m. Art shoppers and lifelong learners interested in ACE classes are invited to come and see the creative process of a sculpture in progress.
