We are celebrating Sea Turtles at ESAC!


Eastern Shore Art Center invites the community to engage in creativity and conservation as we celebrate TURTLES! Guests will enjoy interactive booths, art exhibits, art projects, and grab bags.  From Red Bellies and Gophers to Loggerheads and Leatherbacks, turtles are taking over ESAC!
