You are the Arts Council's most precious resource. Without you, programs like ARTREE, the Enrichment Center, quality arts exhibits, classes, and workshops for all ages and interests aren't possible.


The Center's 2,400 sq. ft. "black box" theatre provides the perfect setting for small dramatic and musical productions. Whether theatre in the half round or a club setting, the modular riser and staging system is configured for an intimate presentation between the artist(s) and audience.


People take classes for a variety of reasons, but those reasons all boil down to the desire for a valuable experience. Our goal for all classes for kids and adults is to make them fun, informative, and affordable.
