The Seattle class is held at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, just off the West Seattle Bridge. Built as a school in 1917, the center now houses many different arts and education organizations in its vibrant, beautiful building. We have use of a large, well-lit classroom with big chalkboards, a piano, and plenty of space to move and create. There is a community garden on the grounds, a park across the street, and a nearby greenbelt with trails and natural space to play. We enjoy a fertile cross-pollination with the other arts organizations in the building, and have had visiting poets, songwriters, and film-makers from the Youngstown community enrich our class.
