It’s OK To Be Sketchy ...

... and moldy and paint-y. At least in Central’s art classes it is! Put your creativity and hand-eye coordination to the test to create art as unique and lovely as you in our highly personalized art programs. Plus, the final draw (or whatever masterpiece you dream up) during senior year is displayed in a real art gallery. Set your mind at easel, make rad art at Central and chalk it up as another beautiful life experience!
