Nonprofit Community Art Centers provide hands on activities for a cross section of our society that can be a foundation for personal growth, new beginnings, healing, friendships and just plain old fun!
Tyler Park Center for the Arts, nestled among the winding paths, streams and natural beauty of Tyler State Park right here in Bucks County, is to some a hidden gem fulfilling a multitude of personal journeys through the arts.
Let’s shine some light on this precious local resource.
Members of this diverse art community visit weekly for adult, teen and children’s pottery classes where they learn to master the potter’s wheel, explore personal visions with state-of-the-art hand building facilities and find the comfort of an artistic “family.”
Options for one day and weekend workshops draw art lovers with little to no experience along with accomplished makers to Tyler’s back-barn area, alight with glass torches, intricate precious metal clay jewelry, the shine of enameled projects and other exciting workshops available to adults and teens.
Each year at Tyler Park Center for the Arts, professional working artists come together to offer classes and workshops, build new programs like the development of a glass blowing studio and low-cost opportunities for those in need that are being developed for 2019/20.
Young artists ages 8-16 Summer Art Camps where personal expression is celebrated exploring a plethora of artistic mediums in a fun, relaxing and encouraging environment comes naturally for kids at TPCA camps where art and nature come together in beautiful Tyler State Park.
July through August, happy campers gather for morning sessions, which include sculpture, drawing, painting, tie dye, yoga and creative food fun in our cobb constructed outdoor oven and more!
Afternoons find campers immersed in the ancient, therapeutic art of Pottery.
Wheel throwing, hand-building, sgraffito design, altered forms and more are covered in this intensive pottery experience.
Earth Center Pottery’s professional studio welcomes all levels, beginners to campers with experience build technique and find their personal voice in clay.
