Rapoza Center for the Arts Opens on Summer Street
The Rapoza Center for the Arts challenges all to tap into their inner artist.
iBerkshires.com reports, originally from southeastern Massachusetts, Rapoza Hauser and her husband, John, stumbled upon Adams some years ago and found it to be the perfect place to open up their art center.
The two walked by the Steepleview Realty office on Park Street and saw the former McBride Funeral Home posted, which they eventually purchased.
The Liberty Street funeral home is being renovated but in the interim, the two opened up a location on 98 Summer St. this past summer.
Current courses include drawing, watercolor, jewelry making, and improv comedy among others at different price levels.
You can sign up for these courses at the center, their Facebook page, or on the future website.
Hauser said they also offer drop-in workshops Monday through Friday. In the morning there is a preschool session between 9:30 and 11:30 when parents and guardians can create with their children. From 3 to 5:30 there is an after-school session and children ages 6 to 12 are invited.
People can sign up that day and the workshops cost $10 an hour.
Different workshops and classes will be implemented this spring and summer as new faculty is brought on board.
