Today, the Director of the Phoenix Center for the Arts, Joseph Benesh, joins us to discuss the community arts center and how you can get involved.

Joseph Benesh has been involved with the arts ever since he was a kid. Drama and the arts kept him in school. During his senior year of high school, a part in his school’s play kept him from dropping out. The theater community gave him a community. He discovered nonprofit management after moving to Phoenix. Soon enough, he was hired to work at the Phoenix Center for the Arts. He was enthused to bring the city’s arts community together. In the last four years, the organization has grown in every possible way by 500%.

The center offers classes for all ages. Most sessions are only a few weeks long, so people can try new things out often. The organization offers metals, photography, painting, drawing, ceramics, glass, the performing arts, and other special-interest classes for adults. The popular youth program offers visual arts, theatre, music, and dance courses. Additionally, the center hosts classes and other programs off-site at schools and senior centers.

The center just wrapped up its fourth annual Phoenix Festival of the Arts. Joesph says, “It’s a great way for people to experience arts for the first time.” For other upcoming events, including live performances, check out the center’s online calendar.

The Phoenix Center for the Arts is a great community space to unleash and foster creative energy. If you’re interested in visiting the center, check out their website for hours of operation.
