about McGroarty Arts Center:
Located in the former home of John McGroarty (1923-1944, journalist, playwright, poet laureate, and Congressman), the McGroarty Arts Center seeks to provide affordable instruction in the arts and to preserve the legacy of its namesake.
McGroarty offers four 8-week sessions of classes per year. The classes offered include dance, violin, piano, guitar, theater, painting, drawing, ceramics, and more. Classes available for children as young as two years include storytime, creative dance, preschool art, and more.
Summer art camp is offered every year (on Tuesdays in July and August) for children ages six to twelve.
Before or after your class, enjoy a picnic and play time in shady McGroarty Park, located right at the bottom of the McGroarty Arts Center's driveway.
