It is great to have a place like Create Art Center in my community as a local artist. I am able to make use of the kiln that the center has to fire my pottery as I don't have a kiln of my own. Whenever I go there I see so much art created by the children in the area, that I am amazed at the abundant talent and also how the center handles the needs of so many children who blossom in a center like this. Art is fun, but it is also medicine for the spirit, (the act of creating) so the center offers health and art!
