Michael and Baben PetricelliWelcome to the Michael R. Patricelli Craft Enrichment Program's home on the Web. Whether you are a hobbyist, an advanced student, or someone who wants to get started on a hobby you’ve always wanted to do, plan to take one of our lively, creative/energizing classes. Small classes provide individual attention from faculty who are dedicated professionals committed both as teachers and craft artists.  Learn alongside fellow artists-at-heart. Have time to see where an idea leads in studio-based classes that promote development of artists at all levels. Explore your creative self and develop your distinctive artistic signature.
