With four schools within walking distance, we are truly at “The Center” and excited to offer even more options for local students During the pandemic, The Center has created more programs to support working families and children in the community.

Family Fun Day

Offered three 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.

The Main Stage Playmakers

New to The Center’s programming in this past year, The Main Stage Playmakers aims to provide a theater experience for children ages 7-15, and presents 3 productions a year.

Summer Camps & Seasonal Classes

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.

The fall, winter and spring sessions includes new daytime classes to help fill the gap for students during independence study time and added classes when hybrid classrooms are not in session.
