Since its founding in 1926, Westchester Community College Center for the Arts (formerly Westchester Art Workshop) has provided the Westchester community the opportunity to explore and expand its creativity and gain an education in the visual arts. From the most traditional methods to the most cutting-edge technology, the Center is dedicated to providing education in the arts and craft media, supporting the notion that the arts and creativity are fundamental to life.
The Center’s programs have evolved over the years into a full spectrum of offerings in the visual arts, computer arts, design, and craft media. As an extension site of Westchester Community College, the Center offers a rich variety of credit and non-credit courses every semester, serving matriculated students working toward a certificate or Associate’s Degree, as well as the community’s needs for enrichment.
Westchester Community College Center for the Arts is centrally located at the Westchester County Center. The warm and friendly environment makes the facility conducive to creativity and artistic endeavors. The Center offers thirteen fully equipped laboratories for Black & White and Color Photography, Digital Photography and Digital Arts, Ceramics, Jewelry/Metalworking, Sculpture, Painting, and Drawing, as well as several Multimedia-equipped lecture rooms. Specialized technicians facilitate the efficient operation of a wide range of technologies. The school is also accessible to the handicapped.
