Art School at Old Church Center Gallery: 

The Art School at Old Church was established in 1974 as a non-profit, nonsectarian cultural resource center. A band of artists and friends seeking to start a community art school saw promise in the ruined structure of a 19th century church building. Through their hard work and dedication, the group transformed the old church into a center for artistic learning and enrichment. Today, the Art School continues to offer educational and cultural experiences that enrich the quality of life in the local and regional community.

Our Mission:
The mission of the Art School at Old Church is to improve the quality of life in the community and region through educational and cultural offerings.
