Art Center East offers around 500 classes a year that bring community, creativity, and a lot of fun into our studios. If you have an artistic skill that you would like to share, we invite you to fill out a class proposal. Take a look at our calendar to get an idea of the types of classes we currently offer.

We are always interested in diversifying our selection - your unique artistic talents and perspective might be just what we're looking for! Our definition of art includes more than just the visual arts: music, dance, cooking, writing, traditional arts (like welding, blacksmithing, knitting, quilting, and basket weaving), healing arts, digital arts, and much more.
