Waterworks Visual Arts Center

Providing diverse opportunities in the arts for all people through exhibitions, education, & outreach programs.


Dear Waterworks’ Families,

We have made the very difficult decision to cancel all in-person Waterworks’ Summer ARTventures for 2020. As we continue to monitor and follow guidelines set forth by the NC Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC, we feel we must act responsibly to ensure the safety of our students, instructors, volunteers and staff. Waterworks will refund registration and/or class fees to those registered for summer classes/workshops.

While we are disappointed that our art studios will not be filled with the fun, laughter, and artistry of summers past, we are excited to explore new opportunities to engage children and families in meaningful ways. Be on the lookout for additional virtual opportunities now being developed by our creative team. In the meantime, Waterworks is proud to share these virtual opportunities to engage and inspire your imagination and creativity:  Celebrating Rowan County's Young Artists Virtual Exhibition and How to Make a Leatherback Turtle Paper Relief Sculpture.

Thank you for your continuing support of Waterworks.  We look forward to when we can all be together again.

Be well and stay safe,
