At The Charles H. Taylor Arts Center, we believe the best way to keep the arts in your life is by creating art throughout your life. Our educational programs allow visitors and students to broaden their understanding and appreciation of art by interacting with art, artists, and instructors, while expressing themselves through the creation of their own artwork.

The Arts Center offers approximately 20 classes in various media for adults and children throughout the year on a quarterly basis. These include drawing, watercolor, painting, photography, yoga and other media. Both one day workshops and multi-week class sessions are available. During the summer, the center offers week long programs for children in a diverse range of mediums.

Tap into your playful and wise self with SOULCollage®! Developed by Seena Frost, SOULCollage® is a creative process that allows us to access our intuition, deep inner wisdom and healing. We’ll create small, focused cards using images (no words!) from magazines and other media that represent different aspects of ourselves so we can integrate their gifts and guidance. It’s a powerful and fun creative process.
