Monarch Hosts Ribbon Cutting for New Creative Arts and Community Center in Southern Pines

The center was designed to offer cultural arts and engagement opportunities for day program participants and the public. Local artists, community college faculty and staff and volunteers work with people who attend the program to help them to demonstrate and enhance their creativity through dance and drama, pottery and jewelry making, painting, cooking, gardening and other engaging activities. Local residents and community organizations are invited to join classes and workshops that are offered for the people supported.
