Come join in on the fun on Third Tuesdays by participating in Art a la Carte at the Yadkin Cultural Art Center.
Each month we will offer a different art experience for you to sample. These are two – three hour sessions and all supplies are furnished. Feel free to bring a beverage of choice and a snack.
The artists need time to prepare supplies and projects so Pre-registration is a must! The cutoff date will be 5 p.m. on the Friday before unless the class meets maximum numbers before that time OR if the artist has specified another date. Sessions will be 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Check individual listings for specific registration cut-off dates and class times. If you do not wish to register online, you can stop by the Center and register with a check.
Note: We understand that things happen so if you need to cancel more than two weeks prior to cut-off date, a credit will be issued for another class of your choosing. Due to artist prep time, there are no refunds for cancellation less than two weeks prior to cut-off date.
