Arts in Education
The Performing Arts Program continues to be our strongest outreach program, reaching well over 12,000 students each year with performances alone.  This program is co-sponsored with the Cleveland County Schools and brings to the county professional artists who are generally here for a two-day residency during which they perform in the schools.  These professional artists provide an opportunity for our young people to see and hear programs they might not otherwise be exposed to. 


Scavenger Hunt
The Arts Council welcomes groups from schools and the community. Each exhibition has a scavenger hunt to help younger visitors learn about the art.
