OFFCenter's Mission is to promote positive self identity and resilience through art making by providing a safe environment for creative social interaction with an emphasis to enhance the lives of those most marginalized in our community. We provide free to the public: a multi-generational arts studio with a variety of materials as well as facilitated weekly workgroups that meet in Drawing/Painting, Card Making, Knitting/Crochet, Guiter/Ukulele & Creative Writing. Use our professional frame shop jewelry/metalsmithing shops, or attend our specialty workshops for free or low-cost in a variety of techniques. Check our Calendar for a list of “drop-in” free weekly arts workshops, special workshops/events, exhibit openings & more! Or just come in to shop from hundreds of local artists' unique creations in our Art Sales shops, gallery or to find the coolest knick-knacks in our Thrift Shop. A portion of all sales help to support OFFCenter's mission. Outreach activities include bringing free art making activities to children and the public free-of-charge in a variety of venues, a local elementary school and our annual Folk Art Festival.
