Capital Arts Gallery Exhibitions: A gallery featuring thousands of pieces of mostly local and some state artists. See our schedule for upcoming admission-free exhibitions and artist talk/ reception dates. Every 6-7 weeks the exhibitions are changed out for the next theme.  
 
Year-Round Classes: Visual arts instructors are recruited year-round for affordable and unique classes/workshops which will serve both youth and adults and provide a large variety of options in both media and subject. Classes generally charge tuition fees that provide financial opportunities for participating instructors.

NEW PROGRAMS:

Art Heals: Art heals is a new and complex community-focused program committed to the empowerment and transformation of individuals through the visual arts. Working cooperatively with existing local non-profits and organizations, this program serves to transform, heal, or empower select populations encountering adversity through the visual arts.
 
Free Monthly Figure Drawing and Critique Group:  The opportunity to exercise figure drawing skills with a live model is offered free to the general public each month, as are critique sessions for sharpening artists' skills. A free monthly critique meeting is facilitated monthly for practicing artists of any skill level to discuss and critique any work. Figure drawing takes place on the first Tuesday of the month at 5:30 pm and Critique Group meets on the first Thursday of the month at 5:30 pm.

 

PROGRAMS IN-DEVELOPMENT:

Monthly Enrichment Program: Capital Arts will be scheduling presenters and performances from all of the arts. Speakers and performers will provide presentations that will educate, broaden understanding, or expose the community to new ideas.

Arts Resource Center: Capital Arts is working to provide professional and artistic development tools, technology and guides required for artistic success. Tools include a laptop with design software, a small photography studio and a small library to assist in professional development. Free and open workshops will cover how our local artists and art instructors can be successful through a wide array of topics such as graphic design basics, marketing your work, and how to apply for assistantships, fellowships, and other art programs.
