CAA is offering an after-school arts enrichment program at the Carrie E.

The instructors are practicing professionals who reflect CAA’s philosophy.

Our new Adult/teen education classes are offered to the greater community of Croton-on-Hudson and beyond, and take place at Croton-Harmon High School, 36 Old Post Road South, Croton-on-Hudson, NY 10520 in the evenings. Go to "Classes" tab to register and get more information.
