Hours of Operation
Lida Hood, Education Coordinator
Lida Hood is a resident of rural Northern Cambria. She has been the Education Director for the Community Arts Center for the past 19+ years, where she coordinates adult & children’s classes and workshops. She loves to teach art to children and thus, has also grown in her own art. “Children see the world with a different eye and aren’t afraid to try new and different ‘things’.” Those “things” she has learned from her students have helped to bring new life and freedom to her own art.
Ms. Hood is a member of the Allied Artists of Johnstown, Greater Johnstown Camera Club, Community Arts Center of Cambria County, Bottle Works/Artworks, and the Indiana Art Association. She exhibits regularly in regional shows and has won numerous awards for her work. She has taken many workshops, online classes & Webinars, all relating to art and art techniques. “I guess you could say I got a late start in life with my own personal art, something like Grandma Moses. But I’m continually looking and researching new and different techniques to try and to use in perfecting my own work.”
Angela R. Godin, Executive Director
Angela, a native of Somerset County, has created and developed events and arts programs in Cambria, Somerset, Indiana, and Westmoreland Counties, and feels blessed and honored to have had the opportunity to be part of various organization events, including the Arts Center. Angela is a University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown Cum Laude graduate with a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Theatre Arts. Angela has experience in teaching dance from children to adults. Her passion for the arts is a great attribute for the Community Arts Center.
