The Cole Creativity Center is a shared space where creativity is abundant, artists share and inspire, students discover and explore, imagination has no limit, all are welcome, and art creates community.

Classes at the Santa Paula Art Museum's Cole Creativity Center

In summer 2018, the Santa Paula Art Museum launched a new Studio Art Program in its newly renovated Cole Creativity Center for children, teens, and adults! Teaching Artists lead students in hands-on art projects where they are introduced to various art materials, concepts and techniques, and build skills through creative and engaging activities. Courses are offered year-round with the lineup of classes changing quarterly.
