Quality Artist Workshops and Arts Programs Come to the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina!

Cullowhee Mountain ARTS, an exciting new venture in our community, offers exceptional summer workshops in painting, drawing, printmaking, book arts, ceramics, photography and mixed media. Our distinguished faculty with national and international reputations will provide a weeklong immersion in their topic supplemented with lectures, demonstrations, or portfolio talks. Cullowhee Mountain ARTS is committed to supporting the personal and professional development of every artist whatever their level by providing the setting and facilities for intense learning, art making, shared in community. We believe that art enlivens community life and that in a supportive community art thrives best. Our summer programs will include public presentations and youth art camps. MORE

Come. Learn. Create. Collaborate.

Cullowhee Mountain Arts 2012 summer program will include an exciting range of workshops. Imagine yourself in a studio where other artists are exploring solar plate etching or monotype with new inks. Or learning about slabs and extrusions, forming pots you always wanted to make. Or learning plein air watercolor surrounded by majestic mountains and summer botanicals. Or making books as unconventional as ones’ imagination can conceive. And imagine that you will be sharing ideas and meals and outings with other artists from around the country. At Cullowhee Mountain ARTS you will find a like-minded community of passionate learners, energized by wonderful instructors where daily concerns are left behind. MORE

Art Nurtured in a Mountain Setting

Cullowhee Mountain ARTS summer programs are held on the campus of Western Carolina University, in the midst of the Blue Ridge Mountains, 45 miles west of Asheville, 25 miles from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, and only 17miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Cullowhee Mountain ARTS believes the Arts energize every facet of community life. We know that when artists work and learn together ideas blossom and grow, lasting relationships are forged, and creative art flourishes.  We are committed to the idea that arts invigorate communities. When artists return to their own communities after our workshops, they bring their excitement, their imagination and new visions. Cullowhee Mountain ARTS was born out of a desire to support communities of artists and learning and to serve our community with art programs for adults and youth. More
