WHAT WE DO…

The Asheville Arts Center offers age appropriate experiences in the arts for learners of all skill levels in a respectful, safe, and non-competitive environment.  We meet each student at his or her own level and gently encourage them artistically, socially, and emotionally.  We offer high-quality instruction and educational experiences because we are committed to the art of teaching and creating art.  It is our hope to build art and awareness in the community and provide a “home” for families to pursue their dreams.

WHERE WE ARE…

We have three locations currently.  Our main location is in a restored church building at 308 Merrimon Avenue near downtown Asheville.  Our North location is on Merrimon Avenue underneath the Atlanta Bread Company.  We also have a South location just off Hendersonville Road, 2 blocks north of the Long Shoals intersection.

WE TEACH…

Children ages newborn to 18 in our Creative Arts Preschool, Kindermusik, Dance (Irish, Ballet, Tap & Jazz), Drama classes and productions, Rock U and individual music lessons.  We also offer classes for adults in dance, acting, music and exercise classes.  An average of 600 students (ages 3to 18) take our 70 arts classes a week in addition to our 35 preschool students.

WE WON…

The 2008 WNC Parent – Family Choice Awards for the following categories:

Best Music Program

Best Parent/Child Program – Kindermusik

Best Dance Program

Best Art Program

The 2008 Asheville Holiday Parade’s Best Dance Group for Seussical, Jr – the drama program’s entry

WE ARE COMMITTED…

To offer high quality arts education programming and performances.  We teach our students, their families and the larger Asheville community to lead by example and embrace the arts as a valuable part of their lives.
