Shop 'Til You Drop with Arts+ Faculty

Back to News

A defining difference at Arts+ is the level of high-quality instruction our students receive from talented teaching artists. Many of those same artists also sell handcrafted items as a way of leaving their mark on the greater Charlotte community. Here we highlight three faculty who offer beautifully crafted goods for you to purchase just in time for the holiday gift-giving season... or just to keep for yourself!

Teaching artists are listed alphabetically.
