Education in the Arts
The Manhattan Arts Center (MAC) offers art education to adults and children of all ages and incomes. Throughout the year there are a variety of art and clay classes for adults. We also have educational opportunities for children intheatre, art, ceramics, and music. In the summer, we offer our arts-based daycamp "Camp MAC." We also have open studios for artists to work and learn together, including Watercolor Studio, Painting Studio, Clay Studio, and Film Studio.
Nurturing Creative Abilities
Our motto is Arts For All. We believe that arts education enhances the lives of all who participate. With this in mind, we will continue to nurture the creative abilities of Manhattan's children, for they are the future artists, playwrights, actors, singers, and story tellers.
