Governor Roy Cooper has officially declared March 2024 as Arts In Our Schools Month. Across North Carolina and the U.S., communities are highlighting the impact of arts education in our schools through advocacy, recognition, and celebration. The Arts Council of Fayetteville/Cumberland County is committed to serving our schools through our arts education opportunities.

How can you support Arts in Our Schools this month?

Support our Artists In Schools program

Our Artist In Schools program brings arts integration to Cumberland County schools at a reduced or free cost. By making a donation to Artists In Schools, you will help us provide financial support to our Teaching Artists and bring the transformative power of art into our local schools. We are also accepting Teaching Artist applications across all disciplines for the Artists In Schools directory for the 2024-2025 school year.

Experience the Cumberland County Schools High School Juried Art Show

Our current exhibit features work from several of our county’s talented rising artists. Join us on Friday, March 22 (Fourth Friday), as we celebrate these artists at our Artist Reception.  This event is free and open to the public. The exhibit is on display in our main gallery until April 6th!
