OUR MISSION

The Art School at Old Church was founded in 1974 when visionary artists transformed a

19th-century church building into a nonprofit, non-sectarian art school and cultural center. Our mission is to provide a wide range of arts experiences that enrich lives in our community and across the region. We welcome individuals of all ages, backgrounds, identities, and abilities to participate in life-long learning in and through the arts.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY, ACCESS, & INCLUSION

Our long-standing commitment to advancing diversity, equity, access, and inclusion informs all aspects of the organization, including program content, admissions policies, financial assistance opportunities, community partnerships, employment practices, ADA accommodations, and staff, faculty, and Board constitution. 

OUR COMMUNITY

The Art School at Old Church is a vibrant community of artists and art enthusiasts who support and encourage each other in their creative endeavors. There are many ways to participate at the school: join us for a class or workshop, attend one of our gallery exhibitions, or volunteer! To keep connected and stay informed about Art School happenings: check our website calendar, follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. You can also join our email list to receive reminders about registration, events and volunteer. 

The Art School at Old Church does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national/ethnic origin, age, disability, gender identity or sexual orientation.
