Cuvilly Continuing Education

The primary work of the Cuvilly Arts and Earth Center over the past 35 years has been
operating a fully licensed preschool and kindergarten. It is the place where children can fall in
love with creation and discover their place within the entire earth community. Cuvilly has earned
a passionate following from parents and their children.



Why don’t you start a program like this for moms and dads?”


In response to that question we are happy to announce the Cuvilly Continuing Education Program! 

Offerings may include short courses, workshops, special focus days, seminars and lectures and
topics such as sustainable gardening, exploring local habitats and native plants, outdoor art
classes and lectures on topical environmental issues.
