Class Fee Assistance

One of our goals is to make art accessible to everyone in the city of Columbus. As such, the Friends of the CAC have established a fund for class fee assistance. It’s available for any prospective, current or former CAC student who needs help paying for Cultural Arts Center classes. Instructions and limitations are spelled out on the application, which is available at our front desk in addition to the link below.

Selling & Displaying Your Work

Students in our classes have the opportunity to submit their work to Created, the Art Shop at the Cultural Arts Center, to be considered for sale. They can also apply to have their work exhibited in our Loft Gallery. Check out both to see where your art might be seen if you take our classes!
