Public K-12 Education:

The visual arts are a systematic part of elementary school programs throughout the region and elective programs in middle and high schools. The Department of Public Instruction in North Carolina promulgates a NC Standard Course of Study. Visual Arts Education is one of the standards set.

The various weblinks provide access to the programming, curriculum and participants in middle and high schools. For more information on elementary and other programs contact the websites of the School Districts in each county. We have tried to provide a large sample of the various specialty webpages related to art in the public schools. We apologize if we missed any particular schools, just alert us and we will correct the omission.

Private Schools as well as commercial art courses and programs.

Additional Sources: many galleries, continuing education programs of schools and colleges as well as individual artists offer instruction throughout the region.
