Established in 1974, the Skagway Arts Council is a non-profit, volunteer organization whose mission is to improve and enrich the quality of life in Skagway by expanding and diversifying art awareness and involvement.



Community Arts Classes Are A Big Success

A total of 14 people attended the leather mask making class held November 6-7th. They created some amazingly beautiful and exotic masks. Due to demand, a second class was held two weeks later.

The stained glass students who attended Debbie Ackerman's class Nov 27-28 created some beautiful works of art. There are plans for another class soon.
