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!
