Carroll County Arts Center News


Due to the parking lot renovation at the Carroll County Arts Center, entrance to the Center will be through the Memorial Garden walk at the back of the building across the veranda to the front door. This will give everyone an opportunity to see the lovely Memorial Garden and give access to the Center. Hours are Monday, Tuesday, Friday from 10:30 a.m to 4 p.m., Thursday from 1 - 6 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.. The "new entrance" will be used until at least October 10th.


The Woodcarvers are gathering on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. Newcomers are always welcome---the instructors are from Stark County and have won many local, regional, national and international awards for their work. Carving tools are available to use and to purchase, if you wish. All ages are welcome---in fact the class ages range from age 9 to 86.


The Kidz Klass on the third Saturday will be Paper Sculpture.  The class begins at 10 a.m. and lasts approximately an hour, sometimes longer depending on the project. It is geared for 3rd grade through middle school, but younger children can participate if they have an adult to assist them. The fee is $5 but it can be paid the morning of the class.  The instructor would appreciate students registering so there will be enough material for each participant.


The Carroll County Chorale has begun rehearsals for the Christmas season at the First Presbyterian Church in Carrollton. All voices are needed---particularly sopranos and basses.  There is no audition nor residency requirement---just a love of singing and support for one of the arts. Rehearsals begin at 7 p.m.
