The Arts Association began conducting classes in the newly renovated and expanded Washington Street building on October 16, 2017. Not only does the property offer an entire city block of parking to enable easy and safe access for parents and students, but great effort was put forth by the Dobbs family and the Arts Association to retain as many of the original features of the building as possible, giving the desired retro-industrial style.
