The Harwood is a multi-tiered art destination. Artists rent studios here, and their creations—and those of outside exhibitors, too—are displayed in the galleries. The center also presents a full schedule of classes, including those for adults, in a variety of media such as jewelry and book making, painting, and sculpture. Open drawing sessions with a live model are held Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. The Harwood is also a favorite stop on the city's First Fridays, when galleries around town debut new exhibitions and welcome the public for receptions.
