THE NEW BUILDING
Since our creation in 1994, CCE has been providing arts integrated programming all over Palm Beach County. We continue to do that outreach; but now we have a new home! In July of 2013 we moved into our new Center- a former roller rink in the Northwood Village section of West Palm Beach.
This cultural and educational center gives us a place of our own to provide classes for children and adults, teacher and artist training and special programs for the community that further the goals of creative learning. It's been a busy first year with:
- Hundreds of art classes
- Art shows and demonstrations
- Community meetings
- Fundraising event - “Circus at the Center”
We are renovating the building in phases so that CCE can complete this project without going into debt. The entire space is 18,000 square feet and we’ve renovated about 40% of that so far. We’re raising funds right now to complete another 20% that will add much-need classrooms. In this phase we will be building out two art studios, a computer lab, a science lab and large public restrooms. We’ve made the commitment to only build what we can pay for, and with your support, we hope to begin building soon!
Naming opportunities are available for gifts made to support the continued renovation. Help us keep growing!
