The Cultural Arts Center Workshop Experience

Our periodically scheduled workshops, most of them taking place over the summer, are designed to be concentrated experiences focused on specific areas of artistic expression. They allow attendees to try something new without having to commit to our standard 7-8 week classes, and often explore mediums and art forms not typically offered in our lengthier classes. Subjects offered have included:

  • Calligraphy
  • Creative writing
  • Japanese raku pottery
  • Jewelry setting
  • Oil painting
  • Ceramic molds
  • Sewing
