Classes at the Center

Classes and workshops at the Center are presented in a non-competitive, social, and supportive environment. All members of the community are invited to explore creativity, develop a craft, and create a new artistic skillset. Classes at the Center are taught by a core faculty of professional working fine artists, skilled craftspeople, and experienced educators. We offer classes in visual art, music, dance, theatre, yoga, and writing for people of all ages and abilities.

Scroll through our list below -- adult classes are flagged in yellow and kids' classes are flagged in green
