You may park in the spots under the trees on the side facing away from the building, the building side spots are reserved for renting artists. We will provide parking passes at your first class. These spaces are first come, first serve, so give yourselves some time ahead of class to find parking.  If you park in the McGuffey lot, be sure to only stay for the hour that you are in class so that other patrons to the building have an opportunity to use those spots.

On street parking is also an option in the spots located between the McGuffey building and McGuffey Park as well as the side streets in front and along side the building.
