The Arts Council offers a variety of visual arts classes for both adults and children, presented by staff as well as talented local and regional artists. Contact the Arts Council for details.



Creative Kids

The Creative Kids class will be returning this spring with classes running between March 6 – April 18 from 4 – 6 p.m.

Visual Arts Academy
Spring 2018 Information


In Spring 2018, the Visual Arts Academy will have an 11 week session that meets once a week on Tuesdays between January 30 – March 6 from 4 – 6 p.m.

Students are encouraged to work on projects at home independently in addition to class.  This program requires dedication and commitment on the part of both students and parents.  Students are required to attend regularly in order to participate.

Those interested should submit an application before the beginning of the semester.  Along with the application , please include a portfolio showing photos of at least three examples of the student’s work.

The Arts Council of Wilson and Barton College are very excited to offer this exceptional opportunity to interested students!

The cost is $90 for the spring semester.  Payment is due before the beginning of each session.  Scholarships are available.  Please, check back for the fall 2018 schedule.


Even if you’ve never picked up a paintbrush, you will be able to create your very own work of art in this class! Led by local artists, Paint & Pour classes are perfect for date night, girls’ night out, or the chance to get away for an evening of creativity just for yourself. The $35 class fee includes all materials – the only thing you need to bring is a snack and beverage of your choice. Register by calling (252) 291-4329 or come by the Arts Council of Wilson. Class size is limited to 15 students.

Stay tuned for new Paint & Pour events!
