We offer Icon Writing workshops, spiritually-themed art exhibits, the Artists Way and a variety of hands-on workshops.

As you know, the Center survives through the commitment and generosity of our members.  We’re counting on you more than ever to help ensure that our programs and services continue to flourish during the COVID-19 pandemic on Zoom and -- to the extent possible -- in house.  Your annual membership dues are one convenient way to do that. Take a moment to renew your membership now at whatever level feels appropriate for you.  We deeply appreciate the assistance you offer the Center, and we hope to see you at one of our upcoming programs when we are able again to meet regularly on site at the Center. 



Seeds of Change Lending Library

More than 50 friends of the Center gathered in several Zoom circles in 2020 and 2021 to read and discuss titles they chose themselves about systemic racism and ways to open paths to greater racial unity and harmony.  This popular circle seemed to be answering a need.  A number of readers were moved by the experience to undertake action to do what they could personally to effect change.  As a result, several are now involved as volunteers and mentors in the community.  The books, which sparked intense discussion among participants, have been gathered in a special collection in the Center’s library and are available for loan.  Call us at 772-567-1233 to arrange an appointment to come in and browse.

Center forges partnership with Treasure Coast Girls Coalition (TCGC)!

In 2021, the Center began a partnership with the non-profit Treasure Coast Girls Coalition (TCGC), which works with economically deprived girls ages 9-18 in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math, through after-school and summer  programs. The TCGC provides girls equal opportunities to pursue and thrive in STEM/STEAM careers which helps to narrow the gender pay gap, enhances economic security, and ensures a diverse and talented workforce. In addition, they teach digital technology and emotional intelligence to girls who attend Title 1 schools in Indian River County.

To keep the dream alive for these young women, they need critical support.  They are looking for volunteer mentors and educators as well as donors who can offer financial support. Please consider visiting their website at for more details and to make a tax-deductible donation.
