Community Classes

We offer several classes a week that take place in our community. These classes are made up of a variety of people. We work with the homeless community, low-income seniors, those with physical or mental challenges,and at risk inner-city youth. Our professional staff work with volunteers and their ideas to set up classes and projects throughout the community. We partner with several organizations and non-profits around the city to join together in our pursuits of bringing growth and art expression to our community. We do it through art and conversation. We hope to instill creativity and give the people, who might not otherwise have the opportunity, a chance to create something and see where it leads them. Most recently we have begun offering professional art expression classes to organizations for their clients and staff hoping to use art as a way of healing and nourishment for the soul.
