Since the grand opening of 171 Cedar Arts Center in 1968, 171 cultivated a legacy of excellent arts instruction in the Southern Tier. Classes are taught by professional artists and passionate community members in a great variety of subjects from felting to fencing and everything in between. Out departmental pages offer a deeper look into 171's core programming areas- ceramics, dance, music and visual arts- about the spaces, the curriculum and the instructors. We also currently offer classes in culinary, creative writing, fencing, foreign languages, and much more. All current class listings can be found here.
