The arts are a fundamental part of a confident and cultured society. They challenge and inspire us. They bring beauty, excitement and enjoyment into our lives. They help us express our identity as individuals, communities and as a nation. Northumberland School of the Arts offers programmes that engage the human spirit which is expressed throughout the world in art and craft. It enriches lives by teaching skills, ideas, and the value of the handmade.
Northumberland School of the Arts welcomes everyone - from professional practitioners to interested visitors. It is a place of inspiration, enterprise, and creativity where people love to work, feel free to experiment, and often exceed their own expectations.
The school features education in visual arts, digital arts, music, drama, photography, textile arts, domestic crafts, culinary, gardening, writing, children’s classes, and a variety of other mediums. Classes and workshops are taught by outstanding local, regional, and national artists. The school also organizes art and craft exhibitions, lectures, and concerts. Our Mobile Outreach Program disperses artist-teachers to schools and retirement homes during the year, giving local children and seniors hands-on learning in art, music, drama, and traditional craft media.
The Mission of the Northumberland School of the Arts is to promote, enhance and encourage the development and enjoyment of all forms of the arts in the Northumberland Region.
