OUR MISSION

Our mission is to expand what our community knows about the world of contemporary art. We want to make art a more hands on experience and design programs that will challenge students to think as a group in an effort to create. Where visual art has a tendency to be a more solitary experience, Watershed will create an art space where everyone is a part of a team. Showcases, exhibitions and class graduations will provide a performative experience in which students will literally show their audience how their work is created, making art an event rather than simply a painting on a wall.

Support Local Art

A space with the main focus on the community of all ages and their interest in the arts. This will provide an opportunity for experimentation and collaborative projects among like-minded individuals with or without experience in said field. Our primary interest is not in selling art but rather creating an experience not currently offered in the area.
