ACE Summer Series

SARASOTA COUNTY, May 29 — Adult & Community Enrichment (ACE) at Suncoast Technical College offers a new selection of family classes this summer. These fun, hands-on classes are designed to bring generations of family members together to learn something new in a creative environment. For a few hours, children ages 10 and older can pair up with a significant adult in their lives and discover new skills as a team. 

The Summer Family Series at ACE is made possible by a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County through the Allen Wirtz Nobbe and Jo Bowen Nobbe Fund. Thanks to this grant, the course fees have been reduced, making the class offerings more affordable to families. ALL CLASSES COST $15 PER PERSON, unless otherwise noted.
