“We want to try and be mindful of the community and offer classes to fit people’s needs and wants. We try to do this in a way that offers them the opportunity to have an outlet that allows them to be creative and stay positive. I believe the arts can make you feel good and that there is a lot more power in creating art than people realize.”arrow_forward Learn more about Cynthia and CSCA
