Formerly Bad Dog Rediscovers America, they've shortened the name to just "Bad Dog Arts" and along with the change they've moved to a new artspace at 824 S. 400 West w/ more space and parking. The cool kids' art classes are still going.

In fact, we just got the spring schedule from Bad Dog in our e-mails here at the office and thought we should share it. This spring the theme is "Time Machine," and kids will get to go back to periods of history through their artwork.

Classes cap at 12 students and run March 14-May 27. Bad Dog closes the week of April 18 for Spring Break.
