TAMPA, FL — This week, the University Area Community Development Corp. resumed its cultural arts and wellness programs.
Programs have been suspended since March due to safety concerns regarding the coronavirus.
Harvest Hope Park and other University Area CDC facilities reopened Aug. 10.
The University Area CDC’s Prodigy Cultural Arts provides classes in all aspects of the arts to youth as well as some classes for adults.
During the shutdown, the organization developed and provided free Prodigy virtual classes and online tutorials. More than 40 free video tutorials are still available online on the following topics: life skills, painting, drawing, dancing, bass guitar, the shaker and more. Some virtual classes will continue to be offered as in-person classes are re-introduced the week of Aug. 24.
Also resuming this week are the Get Moving! free, in-person classes.
Additionally, the University Area Computer Lab, now located inside the main University Area Community Center building, will re-open on Wednesday, Aug. 26.
The organization’s INVEST Workforce Program, which helps area residents improve their employment opportunities at no cost, operates out of the Computer Lab.
