Fall Update:

For those of you that do not know, the Croton Cortlandt Center for the Arts suffered a catastrophic fire on January 3, 2014.   Despite all 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 at the Hendrick Hudson Free Library 185 Kings Ferry Road, Montrose, NY  10548.

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 .

Fall Time is Here! 

There’s something for everyone- young and adults, beginners and experienced artists! Click  FALL.2014  to view our full range of offerings for this Fall.
