If you’re looking for some lagniappe, the Arts & Crafts Center is a one of kind shop that always delivers a little something extra. We keep Striker Nation in official awards, keepsake gifts and custom retirement boxes.

We also offer graphic design services and printing, as well as engraving and custom printing on any surface. Patrons can improve their skills and tap into their inner artiste with instructional art project classes or woodworking classes. The center also hosts children’s crafting parties as a creative way to celebrate.

Customers who want to develop their art skills or who just want a fun social outing enjoy our art classes. Arts & Crafts offers a variety of classes that change seasonally but that are always a hit for the participants.

Awards and Farewell Gifts

Arts and Crafts is the spot on base to order awards, plaques, trophies, desktop acrylic awards, and much more. Our acrylic printing and engraving capabilities let you create a gift item or award series unique to your organization. We can print or engrave on just about any surface or item imaginable. Louisiana-shaped customized acrylics are very popular. Engraved decanters and tumblers with a logo or personal touch are also trending. We will make a deal on awards purchased in bulk, to help you make your budget go further.  Remember, dollars spent at the Arts & Crafts Center come back to our Barksdale families through morale, welfare, and recreational programming.
