About the Collective

The Daystar Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to building community around arts and culture. The Center’s Arts & Culture Collective allows for diverse educators, students, and friends to join in community and to promote arts and culture through private lessons and group classes in the facilities at 1550 South State Street. Together, the Collective seeks to promote the well being of members of the community who have few opportunities for learning, recreation, and enjoyment.
