Our mission is to be a community space and connector for the arts and lifelong learning, providing opportunities for creative skill-building with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation. 

We believe:

  • We are all students ready to discover and teachers ready to share our gifts and passions.
  • Imagination, creativity, and process are as, if not more, important than the product.
  • In making arts accessible and fun for everyone.
  • In valuing art, artists, and educators for their cultural and economic contributions.
  • In creating innovative, unique, diverse, inclusive, and inspiring experiences.

We collaborate with local, working artists who are eager to share their passion and knowledge in a place “Where Art Is Made,” and together we cultivate an innovative, experimental environment that pushes students of all skill levels to express their creativity in an experiential atmosphere.
