Be it on stage or behind the easel, the arts dare our imaginations to soar. Asheville School’s fine arts program uncovers a student’s inner artist and sharpens their understanding of theory and technique. From poetry to pottery to piano, instruction is never confined to the classroom or campus. Students immerse themselves in the Asheville community, a beloved enclave for creatives that will inspire a lifetime of artistic exploration.
Built on Art
Asheville has grown into one of the Southeast’s most vibrant destinations. Our Arts in the Community program embeds students in museums, concert halls, and studios, where they gain unprecedented exposure to local artists and begin to understand what’s possible with a passion for creativity.
We currently partner with The Asheville Art Museum, the Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center, and other local arts organizations to provide students a wide array of experiences both on and off campus.
Asheville School regularly hosts professional artists and guest instructors who infuse the arts curriculum with their expertise and experience.

Each school year, the John M. Crawford, Jr. Art Gallery hosts four exhibits by professional artists and two student exhibits, curated by Asheville School Art Teacher Casey Arbor. The gallery is named in memory of John M. Crawford Jr., a prominent collector of Chinese calligraphy and painting, trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and a devoted alumnus of Asheville School.
