Arts UnCorked: Uncork your inner artist

Choose a session based on the featured art piece! Mimic the process of recreating the piece - or put your own twist on it! You don't need to have any experience. It's all about having fun, exploring your inner artist and having a glass of wine in the process. Sign up alone and make new friends or get a group together and try something different. All art supplies are included. BYOW (bring your own wine). We'll supply the glasses and even uncork it for you!

We have private parties available for: Birthdays, Girl's Night Out, Team Building Events, Bachelorette Parties and more! We can tailor art to your specific needs and make your event truly memorable. Give us a call at (434) 528-3256.

Making Empty Bowls WEEK!

Find out more about Empty Bowls

All ages can make a handmade bowl to donate to the Academy's Empty Bowl event on March 8. Learn basic clay forming techniques, and donate your time and talents to a worthy cause! Experienced throwers can come prepared to work on the potter's wheel, and stay for a longer session. The fine print: you must preregister by the day before the session. Groups are welcome to set up individual sessions by contacting May Carter, mcarter@academyfinearts.com.
