White Plains Center for the Arts Courses to continue
WESTCHESTER COMMUNITY COLLEGE TO CONTINUE OFFERING COURSES AT THE WHITE PLAINS CENTER FOR THE ARTS THROUGH MAY 2020
Westchester County Executive George Latimer and Westchester Community College President Belinda S. Miles announced today that Westchester Center for the Arts would continue to offer a full slate of arts, jewelry, and ceramics classes at the County Center at 196 Central Avenue in White Plains through the spring semester of 2020. Officials from the County and the college worked together to delay a previously scheduled closure of the center while long-term plans continue to be explored.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, “The arts are a very important part of our world here in Westchester County, and I am pleased that Westchester Community College will continue to offer this valuable program to its students. When people are provided with the opportunity to explore the arts, jewelry and ceramics, it is a win not only for our students, but for our community partners and key stakeholders as well.”
Westchester Community College President Belinda Miles said, “We are a community partner providing access to higher education and lifelong learning. This collaboration means offering classes taught by our renowned arts faculty for continuing education students at the Center for the Arts while pursuing sustainable programs and partnerships that best meet stakeholder needs in Westchester County. We sincerely thank everyone who has been part of this iterative process.”
Space is available and registration is currently underway for summer programs and teen summer camps. Fall 2019 classes have been announced and interested students may register beginning August 1. More information and hours of operation are available online at www.sunywcc.edu/arts.
