Art Center Happenings

Learn about the Surrealism Art Movement and Check out the Community Exquisite Corpses

 

We are excited to announce that we will re-open to the public on
Monday, October 5th with limited programming and limited clay open studio. We will follow social distancing guidelines including mask-wearing, temperature taking, and disinfecting between classes and open studios. Registration will open on Monday, September 14th.

 

We will be following the social distancing COVID protocol.
All students and clay open studio participants will need
to sign a COVID waiver, get a temperature check
upon entrance to the building, and wear masks.

 

Because things change daily we will continue
to evaluate the situation and update our
community as necessary through this website,
Facebook page, and E-news blasts.

 

Please check out our Facebook page
for online videos, links, projects, and creative ideas.

Membership
Now that the arts center is a City department we will no longer be offering memberships or membership discounts. While your membership is still current we would like to offer you the opportunity to apply your membership fee to a class or clay open studio. Please call to register.

 

 

It is our hope that you will continue to enjoy the arts by supporting
our local community arts and cultural organizations.

Volunteer at The Arts Center

As a non-profit, a lot of the work we do at The Arts Center is dependent on help from our volunteers. We need help in many areas, at a variety of times during the day. Volunteer opportunities range from administrative tasks, special event preparation, class assistants and even long-term internships. Please be advised that we may not have available opportunities in all areas at all times.
