The Holyoke Creative Arts Center

Preserving traditional decorative arts and crafts for over 100 years
Students and supporters,
In recognition of local public health recommendations and abundance of caution for our instructors and students, we will be postponing classes at all locations of the Holyoke Creative Arts Center until May 4th. 
For a small, tuition-drive organization such as ours, deciding to close temporarily is a major decision, and was not made lightly. We value the support of our wonderful community of students and supporters. In the meantime, we encourage students and instructors to stay in touch virtually. If anyone would like to offer a virtual demo of a new technique or art project, please let us know at
We would be happy to coordinate such an activity free of charge.
Please stay safe and healthy.
Warm Regards,
Holyoke Creative Arts Center Board of Directors
