PARADISE, Calif. - The Paradise Art Center is looking to make a comeback after just reopening.
Here at the Paradise Art Center, art takes on a whole new meaning. It's a way for artists to come together and express themselves after going through a tragedy like the Camp Fire.
The Paradise Art Center closed right after the Camp Fire.
With thousands of people losing their homes in the fire, the center lost more than half of its original members, going from 160 members to 12.
The center just reopened this year, but the center's president says it's still struggling to get its membership back to what it used to be.
Kathy Dystert, President of the Paradise Art Center explained some of the hardships they are facing.
"It's going to be a little tough maintaining unless we do build up our membership once again, and being closed for a year did not help. But we were able to reopen on November 8th," Dystert said.
The art center is beginning to host art classes again to regenerate interest and membership.
