The dream began in XXX with a figure drawing group in Liz Cutler's second floor studio in Bar Harbor's Municipal Building to create a center to build community through the arts. 

In XXX, we became a non-profit and moved to our current location in Town Hill.  

Our Town Hill campus is a unique arts facility, ideally suited to the needs of our creative community.  The campus began as the home of Joanne Tortie's Dance school.  Later, art patron Marion (Kippy) Boulton Stroud acquired it, adding a beautiful arts studio.
