One of our beloved clients, the Autumn Art Workshop, was set to host their annual workshop with us in 2020, but was unable to because of Covid-19. For many reasons, the group saw this as a natural time to disband too. While saddened to see them make this decision, we fully understood. This group of volunteers worked so hard to build this workshop into the renowned event it had become over its 53 three-year history attracting nationally known artists as instructors and incredibly accomplished artists as students. It only seemed fitting that, The Leadership Center, in its 53rd year of service, would step in to pick up the torch where they left it.

While we are not the Autumn Art Workshop and we won’t become them, we have developed great relationships with the many instructors and artists that have attended this wonderful event in the three years it was on our property. We just felt we could do it justice by continuing to offer those who attend nationally known instructors, a warm and welcoming atmosphere, abundantly delicious food and of course, a team that is delighted to have you all as guests. We are so excited to be bringing you the inaugural T.L.C. Fall Art Workshop in the fall of 2021 with the intent that it will become an annual event each September on property of The Leadership Center.

With any change, you will see a few changes with how things work, though much will stay the same!
