A Summer to Create

Claiming a history of at least 75 years in Hernando County, the Nature Coast Art League is kicking off the summer season with an exciting array of events and activities. All of them intended to realize the NCAL mission, "to promote the visual arts in Hernando County and to encourage and support local artists. We do this by encouraging and supporting artists through educational programs for the continued development of their talents and skills."

"We want to help them make their mark on the arts," she said.
