We celebrate a high standard of excellence within our teaching staff. Our instructors are from the Asheville area and hold at least one degree from an accredited college/university, or have equitable expertise in their genre.


The Academy for the Arts at First Baptist Church of Asheville seeks to empower students of all ages and backgrounds in reaching their greatest potential both as artists and as human beings.


Our highly-skilled teachers create an atmosphere of nurture and expectation in which students pursue excellence in their artistic crafts, developing mature and disciplined character.


Believing that artistic inspiration and talents are gifts which need to be shared in order to be fully realized, we offer regular and exciting opportunities for individual and group performance.
