The ArtSchool offers a diverse range of art classes to adults of all ages. The oldest program of The ArtsCenter, the ArtSchool has provided year-round community arts education to Triangle residents for 50 years. Professional artists provide quality arts education in subjects as varied as ceramics, writing, and painting.

ArtSchool classes are designed and taught by artists in our community. We are now accepting course proposals for our Summer Session (classes 6/19 through 8/27). Summer course proposals are due by 9am on Monday, April 10. If you are new to teaching at The ArtsCenter, please schedule an introductory conversation with ArtSchool Director Anna Hewett by reaching out via email to ahewett@artscenterlive.org.
