The Learning Place

Discover the Middletown Arts Center

The Middletown Arts Center was founded in 1957, with the mission to enrich the community by creating opportunities for artistic expression through learning and appreciation. The Middletown Arts Center continues fulfill that mission by offering an average of 160-175 classes offered during the year, to students ages kindergarten to 90+ in all levels of experience. Talented visual artists, who offer knowledge and experience in their respective medium, teach MAC classes. Students can learn techniques in such mediums as glass fusing, enameling, ceramics, acrylic, oil, and watercolor painting, and digital photography. Please visit our website for complete course listings.

The Middletown Arts Center is the proud sponsor of two art competitions for area youth. In collaboration with Artswave, “Tomorrow’s Artist Today” is visual art competition for youth, ages 13-18, in a 50-mile radius of Middletown that awards prize money to winning pieces. The “TAT” competition encourages student artists to present their artwork in a professional manner and asks students to play an active role in the process of entering. The Scholarship Competition awards area elementary, middle, and high school students scholarships to MAC classes. Student entries are selected and chosen artists are asked to return and compete for a second time at the MAC.

The MAC is home to a newly renovated exhibit hall that showcases artwork from local and national artists. The exhibition hall is open to the public Monday –Thursday during MAC business hours and Saturday mornings.
