At Centrum, we believe in the power of art to ignite, connect, and transform communities.
For more than 35 years, Centrum–in partnership with the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction–has
worked with accomplished, professional artists to inspire and challenge
young artists at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend.

- Challenges students to strengthen both artistic techniques and critical thinking skills
- Exposes students to the work of accomplished, professional artists
- Enables students to accelerate their artistic development
- Provides hands-on teacher training alongside student learning
- Helps school districts around the state achieve their learning objectives
