This fall Phoenix Center for the Arts will welcome students back to its north campus, as Thunderbird Arts Center, located at 1106 E. Grovers Ave., Phoenix, reopens for a full semester of classes.

Beginning Monday, Aug. 30, both the downtown and north campus locations will reopen to full capacity, including the Performing Arts Building and Third Street Theater.

“We are excited to see our students back on campus, expressing their creativity,” Phoenix Center for the Arts CEO Lauren Henschen stated in a news release. “As an arts and culture organization in Phoenix for over 40 years, ensuring these spaces are available to the public is an important component of our mission to provide the community with more opportunities to engage with the arts.”

The Performing Arts Building, which has been open only to staff and resident organizations since this past March, will now be open to the public for classes and available for booking community spaces, with health and safety measures in place. Students will see dance, music and theatre classes added to the fall schedule.

Downtown Phoenix theatregoers will see choral concerts and theatrical performances at the Third Street Theater, 1202 N. 3rd St., Phoenix. The Center accept reservations from local choir, dance and theatre groups again.

Thunderbird Arts Center is scheduled to reopen at full capacity, with an expanded schedule of afternoon, evening and weekend classes.

“We’re so excited to see our north Phoenix community again and provide a space for them to refocus on joy and creativity,” Thunderbird Manager Lindsey Krause stated.

Following a year of arts engagement innovation and experiments, both campuses have added new classes and teaching artists to their schedules, and will continue to offer online and outdoor art classes to provide a variety of accessible arts opportunities.

Registration for fall classes at both campuses is available by calling 602-254-3100 or by visiting phoenixcenterforthearts.org/classes for the Downtown Campus and phoenixcenterforthearts.org/thunderbird-arts-center for the North Campus.
