The Hoffman Art Program

Welcome to the front page of the Hoffman Art Program!

The Hoffman Art Program, named in honor and memory of Bill & Vera Hoffman, runs throughout the year. We offer 5-8 week small group art classes free of charge to all 6-12th grade youth.  Registration is required for each class, as space is limited.  Class offerings change each semester, so be sure to check back often to see what’s coming up and register for the art classes that interest you!


If you have questions or would like more information on the Hoffman Art Program, please see the class schedule below or contact us at 267-601-5147 or info@RhawnhursTurningPoint.com

We are always on the lookout for new volunteers!

Do you have a passion for the creative and/or performing arts?
Do you find joy in sharing your artistic passion with others?
Do you enjoy working with youth and feel it is important to keep the arts alive in the younger generations?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, have you considered volunteering with us? Don’t be shy! Contact our Director at RhawnhurstTurningPoint@yahoo.com , for more information! We’re always looking for new ways to expand how we reach out to our local youth and provide for them. Your idea could be the next big thing to hit the center!
