As an Instructor at the Pacific Art League for over twenty years and also a Board Member for four, I believe this is the best outcome we could have gotten. Considering the challenges we have faced over the past several years, this is the prize our small but devoted team of people have worked so hard for.
Most important is that we get to maintain ownership of our building.
It's the perfect time to go forward and continue to build a solid foundation for the Pacific Art League, both with our building and our Art School.
Thank you for a very enthusiastic article on our progress.
