The space behind the Community Gallery is our Classroom area where we offer a wide variety of classes for children and adults. We are always looking for new ideas for classes, and for teachers to teach them! We are interested in offering classes in anything creative, whether it is painting, drawing, print-making, polymer clay, jewelry-making, photography, music, poetry, journaling...you get the idea! Please let us know what things you would be interested in taking--or teaching!
