Creative Arts School

The Creative Arts School is located on the second floor of the Crest Theatre building.  The School offers beginner through master level classes, for all ages, during fall/winter and spring/summer sessions.

New skills. New hobbies. New you. (And all from the convenience of home!) From classes for art and photography to genres that have never before been offered, we are exploring new territories to bring you classes that are accessible with the click of a button. Using the power of Zoom, you will enter a virtual classroom that is both collaborative and interactive! At the Creative Arts School, we are excited about the far-reaching potential of this tool because it enables teachers AND students to remotely participate in real-time lessons.

Art classes include drawing, painting, watercolor, pastel, collage, and mixed media. All patrons have access to Open Studio sessions throughout the year.

Photography classes include introduction to digital camera use, fine art photography (beginning/intermediate/advanced/master), and digital imaging.

Writing classes include creative writing (fiction/nonfiction), memoir writing, and critique groups. Open readings are scheduled monthly.
