Youth Arts Programs
The Center for Community Arts is committed to fostering creativity for the area's youth. We do this free of cost through two programs: Art at the Library (AATL) for children aged 6 to 9 and Youth Arts Program (YAP) for children aged 9 to 14. Local artists are the teachers and each weekly sessions offers a myriad of mediums for the children to learn and explore.

CCA offers a class for elementary school children that explores creative thinking through movement, visual art, and writing during the school day. Each class has a theme and students will be led through activities in all three disciplines to explore that theme in weekly one and a half hour class sessions. Both independent and group work is used with an emphasis on self-awareness and positive group dynamics. This class is taught by local artist, Penelope Cake.
