Centennial Art Center offers popular, affordable painting and pottery studio classes. CAC has well-lit painting and pottery studios. All of our Specialized Skilled Instructors are local artists. Our most popular art classes include drawing, painting, pottery, and sculpture.

Many local area artists “got started” through Metro Parks’ Centennial Art Center classes and both past and current students consistently win awards in juried exhibitions. Current 2014 Summer Schedule.
