Spring Music & Art Lessons 

The Center for Creative Arts will continue to offer private music lessons held in your home via zoom or facetime, and art classes where your child receives a weekly art lesson video, or can join interactive zoom classes.  Email for more information, or to register!

Summer Camps are now Enrolling!

The Center for Creative Arts will offer fun art camps this summer that feature small class sizes to enable social distancing.  Some classes may be offered under tent canopies outside, weather permitting.  As enrollment will be limited to 10 students - sign up early! We will observe recommended safety procedures, including masking up, as the vaccines are rolled out, and we begin to return to learning together. 

Families are also welcome to join our ongoing virtual art classes at any time.  Options include zoom room live art classes, and videos that children can view on a tablet or laptop and follow along any time during the week. 

Please take a moment to check out our safety protocols that are in place this summer to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in our community.
