The Holyoke Creative Arts Center ( Center ) at the end of I-391 in Holyoke is an adult learning center dedicated to the instruction of home arts and crafts. We are located behind the South Street Plaza at 400 South Elm Street. Our main entrance and parking is at the rear of the plaza. The Center promotes traditional values such as individual creativity, skill development and self-reliance through classroom instruction of many lost arts and crafts of past generations. As an invaluable resource and teaching facility for over 90 years, the Center provides a variety of unique educational programs and services to the entire Pioneer Valley community. The Center believes the creative spirit exists within us all, and community can be built from a group of people creating art. The Center values diversity which is reflected in its instructor and membership base. The Center has met many educational challenges over the years, and has grown and developed programs to meet ever changing needs and demands of all members in today's community. Over two dozen different types of classes are offered to the public at a minimal cost.
