The Art School of Columbia County’s mission is nurturing creativity and community through the visual arts, and our goal is "imagining art for everyone."
The Art School of Columbia County brings the gift of art to our community. Our programs are accessible to persons of all ages, abilities and means. For children, ASCC teaches free word-and-image based "Art in the Library" programs in rural libraries and schools throughout Columbia County and the surrounding region, promoting literacy & creativity by creating word-inspired artwork. ASCC's "Art & Memories" programs bring art to seniors in need, including those with Alzheimer’s or other cognitive issues. Classes are offered in Harlemville in ASCC’s restored 1880 schoolhouse for adults & older teens. ARTalks provide a theoretical component to ASCC’s offerings, featuring pop-up exhibits and panel discussions among regional artists. ASCC’s programs are accessible to persons of all ages, abilities and means & art students have ranged from pre-K children to adults in their 90s & above. A scholarship program funds up to 90% of tuition based on need. ASCC serves over 1800 people annually.
