New Satellite Location: Martha O’Bryan Center

MOB logoThis Fall we will begin offering classes inside the Martha O’Bryan Center in East Nashville. We know many of our students have been asking for a more convenient East-side location and we hope this helps! We are always excited when we can partner with great organizations in new locations. We look forward to bringing neighbors together and helping students learn more about what Martha O’Bryan does for our community.

We have a limited class schedule this Fall at Martha O’Bryan, but are excited about adding more and more classes at this location. If you are interested in a specific topic or would like to teach at this location, please contact

We are always interested in working with partners to bring our classes to other neighborhoods. We now have locations in West, South and East Nashville, but realize that location can limit some of our students from getting to class. If you would like to see NCE in your neighborhood or have an idea for a partnership location (especially in North Nashville, where we do not have a satellite!), please email

Letter from the Director

Fall Catalog CoverThis Fall marks my one year anniversary with
NCE. It’s been an amazing year for the program
and we are so grateful for all of the students and
instructors that make our success possible!

A few highlights for Fall 2016 include NEW
locations! A majority of our classes are still at the
Cohn School in Sylvan Park, Wright Middle School
in Southeast Nashville and the Nashville Farmers’
Market. In addition, we will now be offering classes at the Martha O’Bryan Center’s East Nashville
location and several paddle boarding classes with Paddle Up Nashville.

Another exciting update to this Fall’s lineup are clases en Español!
We hope to continue adding more classes suited for
native speakers and those wanting to practice their
Spanish skills, but this fall we thought we’d start
with something a little creative.

With so many choices we know you’ll find a perfect
match for your interests!

Fall registration is open and ongoing through the session.
