I love the Schack. I love what it brings to Downtown Everett, and I love what it offers those living nearby. My primary involvement with the center so far has been taking advantage of their classes. In the last 4 months I have either registered for or completed three. Each one I have participated in turned out to be a good value for the money I spent. I walked away with new skills, and some really cool projects to show for it. I think they do a really good job offering a wide variety of different media - right now the only thing I can think of that they're lacking is pottery. Thankfully there are other great studios nearby that fill that need. I am really looking forward to my upcoming class in June (lino-cut) and can't wait to see what else I discover there in the months to come.

I didnt know this was here, until I signed up to take a class and was amazed to find a whole new building at the address given. Apparently its kinds of new, with apartments up above it. Free street parking. Hot glass shop, and other rooms to take classes. Took a flame torch bead making class and was quite impressed with the facility. Its a great location and defintely brings something much needed to Everett. Upcoming classes look fantastic, I am sure I will be frequenting here as the years go on. My instructor was great. There are tons of bathrooms. Lots of art on display, a gift shop. Seems like they are hoping to do lots of events at this location as well, we stumbled across some kind of holiday craft fair. I am sure I will be back here many times. Glad to have it in the neighborhood.

Everett has a beautiful new art space and gallery! -Sunlight beams through an all glass entry. -The gallery showcases original works by local artists. -An open hot shop allows you to witness glass artists at work. The art center offers classes too! Visit their website to learn more about glass, fiber arts, silversmithing, drawing, painting, and more. Working artists can even rent studio space. Definitely worth a visit.
