New Education Wing at Cultural Center Will Welcome Students Soon

KA_Yarmouth_Cultural center02_11315SOUTH YARMOUTH – The 9,000 square foot annex to the Cultural Center of Cape Cod is nearing completion and will soon host arts courses of all kinds.

Work on the structure started in January of 2013. It features three floors: open artist studio space on the top floor, a kitchen and function areas on the ground floor and a basement full of pottery, photography, digital arts and recording studios.

Cultural Center Executive Director Bob Nash said the center hopes to target the Cape’s youth who want to record their music or spoken word pieces.

“We knew that once the building was complete that people would want to do things here,” he said. “We don’t go looking for anything here… It’s all driven by the community.”

The upstairs studios were filled by artists who must teach courses in their craft as part of their use agreement. Additionally, any visitors to the building may peruse through each studio and observe the artists at work.

Nash says the cost of the project should settle around $1.3 million. The costs of operation, he said, should be covered by course fees.

Those seats are filling quickly, he said, throughout the full range of courses available.

“It’s a ‘if you build it, they will come’ scenario,” Nash said.

Some teachers are still needed for courses; those interested may stop by the center at 307 Old Main Street, South Yarmouth.
