The center closed a couple of years ago. It has been around for as

understanding the reason was city budget cuts.
I have only taken a couple of classes there, about fifteen years ago
(enameling and faceting), and didn’t get to know too many of the
instructors very well. I think most were retirees that had been
taking classes themselves.
I do drive past almost every day and when they were open they seemed
to have a lot of cars in the parking lot. However the arts always
seem the take a back seat to projects that draw more attention for
Enough said or I’ll really start to rant.
