Who We Are

Mission

The purpose of the organization is to support, advance, promote and educate cross-cultural awareness, participation and expression in all areas of the arts: visual, literary and performing

The Patagonia Creative Arts Association is a non-profit center that offers programming in all areas of the arts. Founded in 1999, Patagonia Creative Arts provides classes, workshops, and open studios for both children and adults. Its goals are to connect the community through hands-on activities and provide a safe and nurturing place to bring out the inner artist in everyone.

Patagonia Creative Arts Association has a history of actively creating partnerships to advance arts in education and arts in the community. From the beginning our programming has encompassed all ages of community members, with our main focus on the children of the area. The programming is balanced, affordable to the public, and vital to the understanding of arts as a contribution to quality of life.

With the support of our community Patagonia Creative Arts has a 99 seat black-box theater, known as the Tin Shed Theater. The theater has offered adults and children alike, a venue for theatrical performance and entertainment. Patagonia Players, our local theater troupe entertains our community with several performances a year. The Tin Shed Theater is also the venue for our youth theater group, Club Theater an after- school program that explores the basics of theater through games, inquiry and discovery culminating in a performance for the community.

Newly added to the theater is PCAA’s Patagonia Movie House, offering a 23 ft wide movie screen with digital projection and surround sound. Viewers can expect all of the comforts of a cinema including comfy chairs and a fully stocked concession stand.
