About The Program: The Arts programs, for all ages, are designed to encourage creativity and self-expression. We strive for a class atmosphere that is friendly, fun, and educational, and our art instructors are professional educators with a passion for teaching. The art studios are furnished with kilns, potters wheels, art tables, easels and a variety of fine arts programming. Our mission is to advocate artistic excellence through creativity and self-expression.
Let’s Get Messy!
