CFCC Creative Arts Club

Monday, September 28th, 2015


The Visual Arts Club has changed its name to:

CFCC Creative Arts Club

The goal of the CFCC Creative Arts Club is to promote creative arts on campus through activities that bring students together. One primary purpose is to give students who are not art majors a way to explore their creative side and participate in the school’s artistic community.  In addition, another primary purpose of the Creative Arts Club is to enhance the learning activities among current art majors.

The Creative Arts Club will be open to all CFCC students and faculty/staff who are interested in art. All students, faculty, and staff are welcome. The activities of the club will include art demonstrations/workshops, student art sales, collaborative work, service learning, and teaching.

Meetings: Wednesdays at 3 pm in E building, Room 140

(Note: Meetings will be relocating to the new Humanities and Fine Arts Center soon!)

The E building is located away from the rest of the CFCC campus.  The address is 922 Harnett (the corner of  Front St. and Harnett St.).
