Hands-on Art Classes for UNC Students  
Bring a friend and spend an afternoon getting creative in these relaxed, hands-on art classes designed exclusively for Carolina students.

Each Art à la Carte session begins at the Ackland Art Museum, where you’ll explore some of the art on view as inspiration for your project. You’ll examine the techniques, materials, and effects that other artists have achieved, then go to a studio in Hanes Art Center to try the techniques yourself as you create works of art that you can take home.

Classes are designed for beginners, but also suitable for students with some art experience.

Cost: $10 per class; all materials are provided.
