Welcome to the Museum School at Cameron Art Museum. During the COVID pandemic, we offer a variety of virtual classes and workshops using Zoom for all ages. Zoom is easy to use and allows you to work with teaching artists and participate in our creative community without leaving the safety of your home.

We also offer socially distanced outdoor classes and in-person classes like plein air painting and outdoor photography. Masks and social distancing is required for all in-person classes.

Our teaching artists include local artists and museum staff who provide adult and youth art education including a range of beginning and master classes, which can include CEU credit through New Hanover County Schools. Distinctions of Museum School programming include instructor-guided access to the museum’s exhibitions and select objects in the museum’s permanent collection not on view, and access to the museum’s non-circulating art library numbering over 2000 publications and monographs.

Additionally, the School creates employment opportunities for area artists and instructors. Click here to see our instructor bios:
