The Arts Center of the Capital Region engages people in the creative experience. We are the region?s preeminent proponent of the arts & creative education, expression, and appreciation, serving people of all ages, abilities and cultural backgrounds.
The Arts Center of the Capital Region offers arts instruction in dozens of mediums including jewelry making, stained glass, woodworking, writing, pottery, digital arts, dance, yoga and many more in fully equipped studios. We offer grant opportunites for artists and arts organizations, an artist in residency program as well as 36,000 square feet of creative space for programming and rental opporunities. We also offer work-class art exhibits in our four galleries that are always free and open to the public.
The Arts Center of the Capital Region offers camps over the winter & summer break for 1st through 12th grade.
We are also hosting Social Media events, on the third Tuesday of every month to meet new people and try making art in a different medium. Every event starts with an hour-long workshop designed for everyone to enjoy – from beginners to life – long artists – and ends with a specialty prepared cocktail or seasonal beverage that has been paired with the art form we’ll be experimenting with. Please bring your ID – we’ll also be serving beer, wine and soft drinks!
