The Carlisle Arts Learning Center (CALC) serves
and enriches the community by encouraging creativity and self-esteem through exploration
and appreciation of the visual arts. It does this via classes and workshops, exhibits, and
participation in community events. Since its founding in January 1992, CALC has offered a
variety of courses for children and adults in a number of settings, including the Carlisle
YWCA, Carlisle Community Center, One West Penn, Cumberland Crossings, and Memorial Park
Train Station. Disadvantaged children and adults may participate in CALC classes at
reduced charges via its scholarship program. In 2001 CALC began offering customized
workshops at the request of organizations like the Girl Scouts and the YWCA summer day
camp program. Since 1998 CALC has also mounted a variety of arts and craft exhibits that
are free to the public.
