In the midst of information overload and media stimulation, it can seem impossible to muster the strength and energy required to stay creative and inspired. As part of our mission, Paint Creek Center for the Arts seeks to provide as many opportunities as possible for our community to learn, create, experience and appreciate the arts. In this post we will be sharing upcoming art-making opportunities, exhibits and calls for art, and other creative resources to help serve as an outlet for your artistic needs. We encourage everyone to explore these opportunities as part of a healthy mental and emotional routine during these difficult days.
