Our classes offer an intimate, exceptional learning experience in an inspiring setting with locally and nationally recognized artists and educators.

The Cultural Center provides multi–faceted curriculum from novice to advanced levels, and it extends maximum accessibility in a broad range of programs that strive to develop the individual's artistic interests and abilities.

In addition to our exceptional on-site programming, we offer a wide scope of educational opportunities for underserved communities throughout the beaches and St. Johns County. Our center’s outreach efforts are targeted at reaching underserved children and adults by bringing high quality arts education and artistic experiences to community centers, rehabilitation centers and special needs schools.

 

The Cultural Center’s outreach department fulfills our mission by hiring highly qualified art & music therapists and instructors, purchasing professional arts’ supplies and providing educational and therapeutic hands-on instruction for several longstanding programs.
