The Frances McSwain Pruitt and J. Crayton Arts Education Center
Home of the Jim Aresty School for Young Artists and the Sylvia Rusche Studio
We are a brand new arts education center at the Warehouse Arts District Association, a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization located on the Deuces Corridor of St. Petersburg, FL.
Our mission is to be a community space and connector for the arts and lifelong learning, providing opportunities for creative skill-building with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation. We believe:
We collaborate with local, working artists who are eager to share their passion and knowledge in a place "Where Art Is Made," and together we cultivate an innovative, experimental environment that pushes students of all skill levels to express their creativity in an experiential atmosphere.
A very generous anonymous donor has pledged to match up to $50,000 for all donations make to the WADA Scholarship Fund for donations received by Midnight, May 31, 2022. Please be as generous as you can. Thank you.
