Add creativity to your day!

Art for Lunch continues into Fall 2020 and Spring 2021!  Join us for this monthly creative break to learn about a new art form and make your own creation.

Adaptations are in place for COVID-19 safety: distancing, masks, sanitizing, etc.  Please respect and follow guidelines to keep us all safe and allow programs to continue.

Classes will be led by Artist and Cultural Center Programs Director Cheryl Bannes.  If you’d like, bring your lunch and we will provide a beverage while you enjoy a short 45-minute art project!

Art for Lunch was launched in Spring 2018 and continues on the second Thursday of each month, at noon, in the Cultural Center main Gallery space.  Open to adults and teens ages 16+.

This is a great chance to quickly, easily, and affordably add some creativity to your life!
