Arts in Action
The arts play a vital role in the Central Florida community and in each and every person. Sponsored by the Winter Park Health Foundation and in partnership with numerous organizations, Central Florida Community Arts brings the arts to life with Arts in Action! This collaborative program offers a variety of classes and experiences at a low cost and is geared toward adults 60 years and older. Participants must register in advance as space is very limited.
CFCArts’ mission is to create opportunities for artists of any age to connect, serve, and perform. In order to uphold that mission, the three-year long program will be kept affordable and accessible. Those who are unable to pay may apply for scholarships.
