The walls of an old, repurposed church reverberate with the sounds of joyful singing, strumming guitars, rhythmic tap shoes, theatrical monologues, and whirring pottery wheels. As part of a nonprofit organization, ACPPA Community Art Center's instructors kindle sparks of creativity in the community through youth and adult programs in studio and performing arts, fitness, and dance. A jam-packed calendar keeps families busy with art exhibitions, Mommy and Me pottery-painting classes, and community mural projects bring that residents together to beautify local spaces or paint over typos on the town's welcome sign.

At Busy Bees Pottery & Arts Studio, aspiring artists of all ages gather to paint, sculpt, and cure handmade treasures of fused glass and glazed clay, creating one-of-a-kind keepsakes. Seasoned artists guide groups as they brighten up bare earth with an unlimited supply of paints, glazes, and tools. Students learn to decorate pottery pieces, fuse glass into otherworldly colors and shapes, put paint to canvas, or hand-build their own clay armies of garden gnomes. After clients finish their masterpieces, technicians fire clay and glass artwork at in-house kilns.
