Sugar Maples Center For Creative Arts

Sugar Maples Center for Creative Arts recognizes that every one of us has stories to tell and imaginations to be inspired.  The Center’s workshop program offers explorations in Ceramics, Painting, Drawing, Photography and Fibers. Our short-term summer classes are taught by renowned artists and designers who navigate their lives with the belief that Art is uniquely positioned to inspire and create a more inclusive world. We are proud to invite you to our exquisite campus high up in the Catskill Mountains to be your “home” as you undertake your journey in the various media we offer. Check out the listing of workshops here:

Speaker Series

The Speaker Series at Sugar Maples Center For Creative Arts at the Catskill Mountain Foundation provides the highest quality lecture experiences for the enrichment of the community in the Catskill region. Speakers represent a wide variety of cultural subjects from the visual arts, writing, poetry, architecture, and the environment. They are selected based on their extraordinary achievements and unique expertise in their fields of endeavor. Our goal is to bring together bright minds to give talks that are idea-focused, and on a wide range of subjects, to foster learning, inspiration, and wonder – and provoke meaningful conversations that matter. This event is free and open to the public.

We are happy to provide stewardship of important historic buildings in the Hamlet of Maplecrest in Greene County and will continue to preserve the architectural and environmental heritage of our location.

The Art Explorers youth program offers one-week sessions during July and August for ages 5-14 allowing children to explore their creativity through arts & crafts, scrapbooking, theater, drawing & sketching, and cartooning.
