The Main Gallery showcases a rotating schedule of diverse art exhibits, artist talks & demos, film screenings, and opening receptions. Emerging and established artists find a unique and inviting space in which to share their creative vision with the community.

Youth Classes

Small-group instruction allows students of all ages and abilities to stretch their imaginations, experiment with new techniques, and learn new skills in an encouraging environment.

Adult Classes

Many of our instructors are well-known, established artists who come with years of artistic experience. Our classes & workshops provide opportunities for adults of all ages to master mediums, establish rapport with an instructor and meet other creative people.

All Ages Comedy

Bring Your Own Improv (BYOI) performs every Friday night! This interactive improv show welcomes voluntary audience participation! You can participate in one of three ways: applaud for a scene you like, yell out fantastic suggestions, or if you feel you’re ready, jump up and get involved with us on stage.


WCFA connects all ages and abilities through numerous forms of educational programs and cultural experiences. We are always looking for local community members to be a part of our mission.

Youth Art Classes & Camps

Children can stretch their imaginations at week-long art camps during the summer and April school break. Our classes and camp sessions are led by experienced, trusted instructors, in our bright and airy classroom where children explore their creativity in a safe and encouraging environment.
