The Bascom is committed to being a key player in the creative economy of Western North Carolina by providing professional development opportunities for artists and educators. Read on to learn more about the opportunities available and the process for accessing them.

Our classes and workshops offer artists of all ages and skill levels the opportunity to get real hands-on instruction in a variety of mediums. Learn from professionals alongside others who share your passion for the visual arts.


One way in which we contribute to the creative economy is by providing professional artists with a platform to develop their teaching and public speaking skills while reaching a wider audience for their work.

The Bascom offers disciplined artists and educators opportunities to take on significant responsibilities that further themselves as art professionals. Benefits include housing, studio access, teaching opportunities, potential for exhibition and more.
