Arts plus programs designed for you.

Due to the continued health crisis in North Carolina, we are offering limited in-person, hybrid and virtual programming.  Check back here or on our social media pages for updates.

Our programs are designed to make outstanding arts education accessible for students of all ages and skill levels. From private lessons and summer camps to outreach programs in underserved populations, we strive to provide every member of the community with access to the benefits of a transformative arts education.

  • We offer a range of group classes for students of all ages, from Discovering Suzuki for young children to Comic Book Drawing and a variety of visual art workshops for adults. All of our classes are taught by experienced faculty who are active members of the Charlotte arts community. Find the class that fits your interests and embrace your inner artist.

  • Arts+ workshops provide the opportunity to explore unique music and arts opportunities that are not typically covered in lessons, such as master classes, songwriting sessions, genre studies, exploratory making and more. Our workshops allow students to expand on the skills they are already developing in their private lessons and take their training to the next level.

  • Arts+ camps are designed to give students the opportunity to immerse themselves in visual art and music training and develop their skill sets at an accelerated rate, plus they're a lot of fun.

  • Since 1969, we have been committed to making quality arts education accessible to everyone. Of the 4,500 students Arts+ reaches each year, roughly half receive their arts education for free or at a reduced rate. Our outreach programs make it possible for students of all backgrounds to access the transformative power of arts education.

  • Programs Plus provides outstanding arts education to Charlotte students in a group setting like schools and other organizations. While some programs take place in our central location, we also offer “on-the-go” programs that can be transported to classrooms around the city. By bringing transformative arts education to existing classrooms, we help ensure that students of all ages, skill levels and socioeconomic backgrounds can tap into the irreplaceable benefits of arts education, including critical thinking skills, problem-solving and creativity. We strive to make arts education convenient and accessible for students, so they will be encouraged to continue exploring their budding artistic interests.
