  1. Hello Mr. McGinnis,
    ArtsWest is a private visual and performing arts school located in Eagle. We are growing our afterschool/community art programs and are wondering if you would be interested in meeting to talk about bringing some of your classes to our facility and or working with us in our mission to bring art to everyone in the community. If this is something you would be interested in please let us know. We look forward to talking to you.
    Best regards,
    Veronica E. Roper
    Program Director Creative Arts Campus
