The Arts Academy was found by the Art Center Executive board in the Spring of 2011 with the purpose of filling the educational goals of the organization. These goals are three-fold: to provide instruction in all art forms; provide venues for students’ artistic expression; provide students of all ages classes at an affordable price. The Art Academy instructors and assistants are all talented community volunteers dedicated to the development of the arts through our community art center.
