North Central Louisiana Arts Council has an exciting line-up for its winter Arts Academy classes. These classes are part of NCLAC’s educational outreach.
We believe the visual, performing and literary arts are a necessary enhancement for all individuals, so we seek to enrich the region by fostering opportunities for creative expression.
On the schedule for this winter are classes for children, teens and adults. All of NCLAC’s Arts Academy classes require pre-registration, and class space is limited in order to provide personal instruction.
