TCVA Summer Art Workshops
The Turchin Center for Visual Arts (TCVA)
is perhaps best known for its dynamic art exhibitions that are housed in
the large brick and glass building on King Street. What many do not know is
that, upstairs, on the second floor of the Arnold P. Rosen Family
Educational Wing, is a spacious art classroom that is home to Appalachian
State University art students during the academic school year. During the
summer, when most of the university students are gone, the Turchin Center
offers a variety of art workshops for kids and teens. Pre-registration is
required. TCVA supporters are eligible for a discount.
