  • 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 offer students a unique opportunity to learn under the leadership of professional musicians and artists while developing their skillset at an accelerated rate. Plus, students are engaging with other campers in a safe and fun environment!

  • 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.
