Visual Arts

Four galleries in two different venues offer a variety of local and reginally known artists.


Children and adults can both benefit from a variety of classes including our Visual Arts Academy, Summer Camps, Acting Classes, Paint & Pour and a number of one-time workshops.

The Wilson Arts Center will open to children after the Wilson Parade from 12:30 - 2:30 p.m.  Come meet the cast and characters of A Charlie Brown's Christmas and enjoy making an ornament for your own Charlie Brown Tree!  The children will be able to enjoy a special song from the play and may enjoy dancing their merry way as they enjoy hot chocolate and a candy cane!
