SAACA’s Catalyst Creative Collective, a unique space of over 14,000 square feet of flexible cooking, craft, and event space within the Tucson Mall, is partnering with Antsy Nancy to deliver even more cooking, baking, arts, and crafts skills classes to the Tucson community.

The Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance (SAACA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating, preserving, and advancing the arts. SAACA strengthens the bonds between people, place, and purpose through collaborative, arts-driven experiences.

“We are excited to welcome Antsy Nancy to CATALYST Creative Collective.  The variety of creative classes that they offer is such a great fit for the space, we can’t wait to start!”, said CATALYST Manager, Kevin Larkin.

Teaching classes at a location other than 5655 E River Rd won’t be problematic for Antsy Nancy instructors. Since opening their doors in Tucson, in October 2021, Antsy Nancy has provided recurring classes at The Highlands, The Gallery, The Lodge at Ventana Canyon, Skyline Country Club, La Paloma Country Club, Tucson Medical Center, Catalina Foothills School District (CARE), The Stone Canyon Club, and The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain.

“The opportunity to partner with SAACA provides an ideal solution as we look to grow and expand our reach,” said Antsy Nancy Founder and CEO, Heidi Yribar. “I’m being provided a testing ground for opening a 2nd location without the overhead and capital requirements typically associated. Not to mention the marketing resources SAACA provides and the additional exposure we’ll receive from a shared a clientele. I’m absolutely thrilled.”

Antsy Nancy has scheduled the following classes this Spring at the Tucson Mall location:

“Assuming these six classes go well, which we are already seeing a great response, we hope to offer our best-selling, Weekly Summer Camps for kids ages 6-14, from the Tucson Mall location,” said Yribar.

Those best-sellers include French Baking Week, Cake Decorating Week, Spa Week, and Arts & Craft Week. If you haven’s subscribed to Antsy Nancy’s newsletter, make sure you do, because Summer Camps sellout fast!
