STATUS UPDATE:
WE’RE STILL HERE!

The Art Center survived the horrendous fire that so devastated our beautiful San Lorenzo Valley, Bonny Doon, and North Coast areas. Our hearts go out to all the people, including some of our members, who lost their homes. We know that many people are are still in shock and trying to recover. This has been a hard year for our community and the country as a whole.

ART CENTER TEMPORARILY CLOSED

In compliance with state & county orders, the Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center is temporarily closed
for in-person activities until further notice. Thank you for your understanding.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Art Center soon.

MAKE A DONATION

A little goes a long way. If ten people donate $25, that’s $250 or is it? Actually, it’s lights, power, art materials and glazes, newsletters and postage, school programs and special events…

Just think if ten was really fifteen or twenty people? Together, we donate a little and watch it go a long way, enriching everyone’s experience at the art center.

Your contribution is tax deductible. Thanks for helping us “Make Art A Part Of Your Life.” Stop in to the Art Center and donate.
