With four schools within walking distance, we are truly at “The Center” and excited to offer even more options for local students. The newly renovated building offers a more flexible space and will enable us to expand and improve our Youth Arts Education programs.
Upcoming Youth Classes:
- Monday, March 1st - Sunday, May 30th
- Saturday, March 6th | 10:00 am
Thanks to our Youth Arts Sponsors and anonymous private donors, we are proud to offer $10,000 in Scholarships for Summer Camps and Seasonal Classes in order to increase access to the arts for youth in our community.
More Youth Programs:
- Family Fun Day
Offered four times a year, these are free all-day events geared toward families and introduces many young children in our community to their first-ever arts experience. We offer families the opportunity to participate in healthy art-based activities together, such as face painting, crafts, and a balloon artist and other fun entertainment.

- Student Matinee Series
“The Call of the Wild,” scheduled for Spring 2021, is the first of our new Student Matinee series offering low-to-no cost tickets to students. Based on the classic novel by Jack London, the theatrical presentation features a 180-degree multimedia projection that surrounds actor Noel Gaulin, who plays all of the roles in telling the story of the legendary sled dog Buck. The production is uniquely designed to encourage audience participation through imagination as the story unfolds on stage. We are grateful to BriarPatch for sponsoring the first two Student Matinees at The New Center allowing us to offer student tickets of $5. Thank you to Deer Creek School for being the first to take advantage of this series!

Our Youth Arts Education Program provides in-person and virtual summer camp opportunities for kids to participate in a wide range of professionally guided and instructed art programs.
