These programs are funded through community donations and fund raisers. Program development at the Blanchard Community Center is further supported by partnerships with local organizations including BASIC, Blanchard Arts Guild, Blanchard Stitchers, and Blanchard Spinners. We are constantly seeking grants to off-set costs and expand artistic activities however, we do not currently have grant funding.
From Clancie:  We begin our fall of 2017, here in Blanchard, at the Blanchard Community Center, with a new art teacher, Meredith Mellich. Meredith has a degree in graphics arts.
She describes the class in her own words: 
This will be a class for beginners and anyone who likes to draw with charcoal. We'll do some warm-up fun exercises to start. I'll talk shortly about structure/form, value, line quality, some perspective, positive and negative space, drawing what you see, etc. I am going to leave most of the time for actual drawing time. I want to lay out some drawing basics to build on in future classes and help people feel confident in seeing.
Class price for the 4 hour class is $35 This includes all materials needed. 
Class date: Sept 23, 2017
Class time: 10 AM until 2 PM
