Creative arts & life skills program

The need

Current community programs are limited, if not obsolete, in the area of creative arts exploration and hands-on life skills training. 

Our purpose

To welcome women of all ages to connect & encourage one another. To be provide an inspirational and educational meeting place where friendships & skills are grown. This artistically energized zone for personal discovery will develop according to the creative interests of those involved.


This community resource is located at The Harbor House (Johnson St.) which is centrally located in the city of Hart. It's an easy walking distance from the library, local businesses, and Hart Public Schools, making it a easily accessible option for all those who would like to participate.
