From Our Western Heritage Center Attendees and Art Students

“My children have been enrolled in the Fred Oldfield Art Center for the last 3 years. The teachers and staff are very friendly, caring, and provide an environment where my children feel inspired to create and learn various skills. It’s a great place for exploring the arts.”

Maggie B., Art Student Parent

“My kids attended one of the Art Camps this summer, and now they are really enjoying their weekly art lessons. They’re learning to draw, paint, explore different mediums, and much more. Everyone there has been really friendly, too! Thank you for providing this awesome opportunity!”

Danyel P., Art Student Parent

“Just the best people all in one place. Warm and friendly place for young and older folks.”

Robert R.

“I was privileged to know Fred and be teased by him. Watching him paint was an awesome experience and seeing him with the young people made my heart swell. The Western Heritage Center is a gift to future generations and I’m thankful to have known Fred and experienced the Center first hand. I will miss him.”
