The mission of Antonia arts is to serve the city of Peekskill by offering an array of classes, opportunities, master-classes, workshops, and a space for events and rehearsals. We want to encourage the creation of new works, new voices, and new audiences. Our site is for the collective benefit of all artists in Peekskill. We strive to promote the “Power of Now,” what we consider to be the artistic flow that occurs when one is truly in their element, or “in the moment” and mindful. Likewise, in conjunction with that idea, we foster the creation of new, innovative and cutting-edge works. Antonia Arts, a community-outreach not-for-profit is dedicated to mentoring and supporting aspiring and professional artists of all socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds. Through offering the artist spot space for party and other rentals, we service the whole community of Peekskill—artists and non-artists alike. We are here to promote wellness and diversity throughout the community.
