Special Events

Throughout the year, NCAP offers temporary events that are open to the community. These opportunities include NCAP Summer Camps for kids and youth, our Mobile Arts Studio where you can find our pop-up art table at different city-wide events, and our One-Time-Classes that range from  jewelry making to art journaling, from paper flower arranging to hand-lettering. Check back in frequently to see what we're planning next!

writers' round-table

first wednesday of each month, 11:30a-12:30p


Each month, we are offering a lunchtime round-table experience for writers who are looking for a facilitated opportunity to connect with other writers, have accountability for their craft, and exploring new techniques. Email noelcommunityarts@gmail.com to inquire about spots. 


Monthly journaling fellowship

first sunday of each month, 2p


Are you looking for a few friends to journal with on a regular basis? Do you need a spot to spread out your supplies or the accountability of being with other people? Beginning Sunday April 2, NCAP will be offering an opportunity each for art-journalers to gather and work together. No experience is needed--just bing your Bible, journal, pens, crayons or paints and join us in the NCAP art room for a time of fellowship and creating. (Childcare is not provided, but children are welcome.) Email noelcommunityarts@gmail.com for more information.
