Lafayette Community Arts Center is a part of Tallahassee's award winning Parks & Recreation Services. The center offers a variety of Arts & Crafts classes for children and adults, and is an inexpensive way to get involved with the local art community. I have personally taken a beadwork class, a basic sewing class, and a drawing class at the Center. All have been taught by friendly and knowledgeable members of the art community. I have heard great things about the "No Fear" line of classes, but have been unable to fit one in my schedule. For kids this is a great recreational activity, and they have summer camps directed at children who are interested in arts. Classes run about $35-45 for 8 week sessions which is much, much cheaper than art studio classes. There are classes to fit most schedules (day and evening). Most classes encourage students at all levels to join (unless level is stated in the title), but the instruction is geared towards beginner to intermediate. If you're advanced at a medium of art or a craft, apply to lead your own class and give back to the community!
Lafayette Community Center is a great addition to the city's growing art community.
