Life Drawing is Cancelled for this evening 1/3/23

Hello All:

We are cancelling Life Drawing for this evening. See you next week.



Intensive Painting Postponed

Alex Shundi's Intensive Painting Class scheduled for Tuesday, Dec 27 is postponed until January 3rd. 

Special Thank You

We are happy to announce that our annual Holiday Cookie/Affordable Art Event and Train Display was a grand success!

This important winter fundraiser was made possible thanks to the AOTL volunteers, all the bakers, artisans and train village business sponsors.

Thank you to the community for your warm response and continued support of the event.
100% of money raised will help fund events and programs at the center in the coming months.

Special thanks to the winner of the 50/50 raffle who kindly donated the winnings back to the center.

We wish everyone peace and joy this holiday season and a happy and healthy new year filled with music, art, entertainment and shared experiences. 


Ghosts of the Titanic rescheduled for January.

With a healthy cast and new insight, Ghosts of the Titanic has now been rescheduled for Sunday, January 8, at 3 pm. Previous purchases are still valid, new reservations and info here.

"Ghosts of the Titanic" postponed

Due to off-site exposure of the cast to Covid, we are postponing "Ghosts of the Titanic," scheduled for Sat., Nov. 19. We will announce a new date as soon as it can be set. Link to email postponement announcement.

Shundi Classes Cancelled for this week

This is reminder for the How Photography Changed the World lecture series participants and the student of the Intensive Painting class that Alex Shundi is in Italy this week so he will not holding those classes this week.


Passing showers are not going to diminish the fun we will have listening to the Bottoms Up Dixieland Band. Come on down with your lawn chairs and enjoy!



We expect that the crowd for the Tito Puente event this Friday evening is possibly going to be very large.

As a result, it may be necessary for us to restrict access to the venue at some point prior to the start of the concert due to safety concerns.

SpecialTito Puente Supporter Tickets Available Until 6-19-22


This year’s concerts herald a newly landscaped concert lawn thanks to Julie and Henry Boyd and family. It has magically transformed our humble area by Lake Carmel, with a level lush lawn, and more room for our audience and our stage. Wait till you see it!

However, in taking down our previous stage, we discovered that it was simply not reusable and as a result we are building a new stage. This has been an unexpected expense for us, which on top of the years of Covid, puts us in the position of asking our audience for a special stage rebuilding ticket contribution. While we continue with our "pay-as-you-wish" tradition we are asking our audiences to help us out if they are able.


For the Tito Puente Jr. concert, we are putting aside tickets as special “Special Evening” tickets at $40 which are reserved seats in Rows 1 & 2. Or, you can also support us with “Friend of Summer Concert Series” tickets at $25 which provides seats in Rows 3-10 close to the stage on either side of the dance floor.


In addition if we do have to move the concert inside because of rain, you will be guaranteed a spot inside.

Overall, admission will remain on a “pay what you wish” allowing anyone to come and enjoy this and all the other concert evenings.


We hope to raise enough funds to pay for the rebuilding of the stage. Please help us by buying these special supporter tickets!

Electricity is back on at Center

 Following an outage at Center last evening it is back to normal.
