Spring Update:

For those of you that do not know, the Croton Cortlandt Center for the Arts suffered a catastrophic fire on January 3, 2014.   The fire was very difficult to control, and cccArts is enormously grateful to the 100 firefighters who worked all day in freezing temperatures, trying to save its home. Despite their efforts, the building burned to the ground.  But while the building is gone, cccArts lives on!

With the generous support of local community organizations, cccArts has been able to continue offering some programming, including Art Quest (an art exploration for young children), Drawing and Painting and Cartooning.  In addition, we are excited to announce that we have recently found an alternate location for many of our popular summer camps.  Camps focused on materials other than clay will be held from July 7th through August 29th at the Unitarian-Universalist Fellowship of Croton located at 2021 Albany Post Road, Croton-on-Hudson, NY  10520.  We are still finalizing arrangements for the relocation of our clay camps, but we expect to be running a full summer program and we will advise on the location of the clay camps as soon as those arrangements are complete.

Our efforts to locate a permanent new home are also ongoing, and we will pass along updates as we have more news. If you have questions or concerns, donations or support, please contact cccArts director Gayle Lamb at glccca@optonline.net .
