Arts & Crafts for Teens & Adults

Nurture your natural artistic ability or push your limits to learn a new skill and talent.  WCPR offers a number of arts and crafts classes led by an incredible team of instructors.  If you only enjoy the occasional art experience due to an already filled personal calendar, register to attend one-time, open workshops.  If you can’t find time during the week then check out our array of weekend workshops.  Or, maybe you have time and want to commit to an extended program that offers weekly classes to advance your skill on a weekly basis.  Whatever your schedule, we have just the right program to meet your needs through a variety of art mediums and techniques. We also offer a variety of other programs which may be found in other areas of the website.  Please see Health & Wellness, Music Classes, and Recreation Classes for more programs.
