Pittsburg's Old Town Art Centre at 485 Railroad Ave. (operated by Pittsburg Arts & Community Foundation) is a working studio and classroom for both professional and student artists. Many professional artists working at the Old Town Art Centre serve as instructors to artists in every age group.


It is our belief that everyone is born an artist, but somewhere along the way it is killed or abandoned. Our goal is to keep the artist alive in everyone by working with children and adults as long as one can continue to fuel their personal desire to create. Through true mentorship in a safe and comfortable environment, we are developing and molding future artists.

Pittsburg Arts & Community Foundation sponsors and coordinates core programs that serve our community.
