Throughout the year, the Indian Center offers various arts and crafts classes which allow the community to engage in a hands-on learning experience. These classes provide an opportunity for people to learn first-hand, from knowledgeable teachers, the customs and traditions of certain American Indian tribes​.

Some of the classes featured are clay sculpture, dream catchers, loom making and jewelry design and are taught by local American Indians.

Unless otherwise noted, classes are open to Indian Center members (at a discount) and the general public. Class size is limited to 12 students. School-aged children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.

Please contact ​our Education Coordinator, Michelle Conine, for prices and additional information at (316) ​350-3345 or MConine@wichita.gov.​​​​
