The School at Guilford Art Center serves over 2,000 students annually, from preschool-aged through senior citizens, in four semesters of approximately 400 classes. Classes and workshops are held in bright and expansive (newly) renovated classrooms, a ceramic studio, metalsmithing studio, and a blacksmith forge. Subjects taught include blacksmithing, ceramics, jewelry, metalsmithing, weaving, glass, drawing and painting, fiber, stone carving and more. Tuition assistance is available to help ensure that the Center’s programs are accessible for students of all means.
Our faculty, featured below, is a diverse group of professional artists who work across a variety of media, providing our students with high quality instruction and helping them to experience, expand and embrace their creative potential.
A good number of our instructors have taught at GAC for decades, while others are newer. Their personal style, technique and approach can attract students to study with them. But what makes them good teachers is their ability to balance the tenets of their own work with meeting students’ needs and creative interests.
