Columbia Center for the Arts offers art education, outreach and art classes for both seasoned artists and beginning art students in all disciplines from literary arts, theater, visual arts and more.
We offer art appreciation opportunities for the general public, as well as partnering opportunities with local schools. We have a classroom set up as an art studio, and is available for rent by art teachers and others who want to teach their own classes.
Education is a cornerstone of our mission as a center. We hope you join us in an art class or other art education opportunity in the near future.
