Art & The Environment Video Series

CCA is excited for our Art and the Environment instructional video series making functional art from items that would have gone into the waste stream. This is an example of how CCA is still offering creative programs and practical things you can make from home.

Columbia Center for the Arts (CCA) is collaborating with artists and partnering organizations to offer a series of free workshops designed to transform found objects into works of functional art. Participants will learn skills in carpentry, sewing, engineering, science, and creative embellishment. These workshops increase craftsmanship and skill building through re-purposing material. Many thanks to our funders, Tri-County Hazardous Waste & Recycling Program and Hood River Cultural Trust.

Maker’s Workshops

Columbia Center for the Arts is offering the Makers Workshop series in collaboration with The Dalles Art Center. These beginner-friendly workshops for adults (16 and older) have been redesigned for the times and provide a fun and physically distant way to learn and create art with others.

Our workshops fall into the category of craft and whether it’s weaving, natural dyeing, or making holiday wreath and garlands, it is our intention that you experience learning in a valuable, hands-on way.
