“Art enables us to find ourselves and
lose ourselves at the same time.” Thomas Merton

The Arts Center of Montross

The Art Center of Montross's mission is to inspire and nurture artists by bringing more art opportunities to the Northern Neck of Virginia and the surrounding area.  The Art Center of Montross tagline is "Art for All" and this is what we will provide. We will offer classes for the beginner as well as the intermediate to
advanced artists who want to take their work to the next level.

The Art Center of Montross hosts a variety of art classes and workshops which have primarily focused on adults, however, based on popular demand we will now be offering classes for children. Whether you are just starting out or you are an experienced artist, there is a class for you. If you just love to buy art, we have many opportunities for you with our bi-monthly shows and special events.
However, if we are not currently offering a class in your particular medium or at your skill level, we are always open to adding classes and venues and we always have classes and events in the queue waiting to be scheduled.
