Artisan Crafts Sale


Spring 2020 Crafts Sale


Twice a year, Dearborn Academy’s young artists offer a few pieces of their best work — from unique hand-crafted jewelry to sculpture — for sale to the general public.


For many of our students, the Arts and Crafts Sale provides a special entrée into the worlds of work, arts and crafts.


This year’s Spring Arts and Crafts Sale is scheduled for Thursday, May 28th. We invite you to purchase a one-of-a-kind holiday gift for someone special – maybe even you.
