the legacy project coming Jan 2022

The mission of the Blake Center for the preservation of North Alabama's Art & History would not be complete without an investment in the future. We view each opportunity to educate our youth about art and history as that investment.

The Blake Center is passionate about teaming up with local artist and historians to organize an Annual Youth Painting and Local History Workshop, the legacy project.

Our goal is to assist raising tomorrow’s leaders and do our part to investing in their creative and intellectual capacity. The workshop gives participates the opportunity to learn from skilled professionals making a way for the ‘torch’ of knowledge to be passed on to the next generation.

If you would like to be a part of this exciting project and assist us in anyway please contact us.
